 Creator:  Morris, Marriott Canby, 1863-1948 
 Notes:  Film negative showing four boys and a man from the Boys' Parlors Club standing in front of a group of tents at Wildwood, N.J. The boy in the center hold an umbrella and two other boys carry a baseball bat and glove. A small, black dog rests between the center boy's legs. Founded in 1887, the Boys’ Parlors Association of Germantown served as a safe space for neighborhood children whose parents worked longer hours in an industrializing city. The name changed in 1907 to the Germantown Boys’ Club after joining ranks with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Marriott Canby Morris served as the president of the club in the first decade of the 1900s. Wildwood began developing as a coastal resort town in the 1890s, growing dramatically in popularity in the 1950s. The area was incorporated as a city in 1912.
