Henry Kent Hewitt Typed Letter Signed 1964

One Page, about 8" by 11", Orwell, Vermont, July 24, 1964. About his successful naval career.
Note file holes and folds.

Henry Kent Hewitt (1887-1972) was born in Hackensack, New Jersey on February 11, 1887 and graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1906. Hewitt served on USS Missouri in the Great White Fleet's circumnavigation of the globe from 1907-1909. He later taught mathematics at the Naval Academy before commanding the yacht Eagle. During World War I, Hewitt commanded the destroyer USS Cummings and subsequently the USS Indianapolis.

Beginning in 1941, he commanded Atlantic Fleet Task Groups in neutrality patrols and convoys until becoming Commander, Amphibious Force, Atlantic Fleet, in April 1942. This force, also called Task Force 34, became the U.S. component of the Operation Torch landings in November 1942. Hewitt was then assigned as Commander, U.S. Naval Forces, Northwest Africa Waters or COMNAVNAW. (Sean Maloney, To Secure Command of the Sea, thesis, 1991, p.25)

Hewitt remained in this post until 1945, when he chaired a Pearl Harbor investigation.

Following World War II, he commanded U.S. Naval Forces Europe, advised the Naval War College, and served as a Navy representative to the United Nations. Hewitt retired from active duty in 1949.

USS Hewitt was named in his honor.

Conkey's Poultry Remedies were available at Terhune's Poultry Supply and Feed on Main St.

No date available.

This is not an online find - it's a file cabinet find.

I was going through some old slides and came across these images. The first one was taken from my living room in 1991. It's not exactly my best work - I'll blame it on the crappy weather.............yeah, that's it.

Anyway, you can see where the seats were downstairs and where the balcony was where you used to go to make out.

The second one was taken a few years ago. The space looks way too small, but that's where the Fox was.

There are no pictures, so here's the seller's description:

On this 3" reel of Super-8mm color home-shot film is about 2 or 3 minutes of an October 1984 Reagan/Bush rally that took place in Hackensack, New Jersey. I tried like crazy to capture some digital images of this film, but my camera made that very unsuccessful. Therefore I will explain exactly what is on this film.

It starts off with some downtown Hackensack scenes of the crowd gathering. You can see Reagan signs all over, an American flag hanging from a tall building, and the flag-draped stage with gathering New Jersey dignitaries (none of whom I can identify.) Then there is a shot of Reagan's helicopter circling above. (I'm assuming Reagan is in the helicopter.)

Then you can see the dignitaries standing in a line on the stage as Reagan enters, shaking hands with everyone and then approaching the microphone and speaking (of course this is not a sound film so you can't hear what he is saying.) You can certainly tell that it is Reagan on the stage, but I don't want you to think that the cameraman zoomed in enough to see details of him. You can not see facial details and if you didn't know what Reagan looked like and how he carried himself, you might not know for sure that it is him. But having lived through 8 years of Reagan as President there is no doubt that it is him in all his historical glory.

Very cool footage!

Seller's Description:

This is an invoice from November 1906. It is from the Hackensack New Jersey Feed Company - Holley & Smith wholesale and retail dealers in coal, hay, grain, and feed - State Street and Susquehanna RR - Alfred T. Holley and Walter R. Smith.


This is a scrapbook from a Hackensack girl who lived at what I think is 116 Clinton Place (picture isn't sharp). Most of the contents are from the 1920s, but there are letters from her father from as far back as 1908. She apparently liked high school football and not just Hackensack games. There are more pictures with the auction.

Here's the seller's description:

Up for auction is: A vintage girls' scrapbook circa 1920's in the Hackensack New Jersey area. Her name was Natalie Agusta Pratt and she collected some early letters (2 from her father dated 1908 & 1912), photos, an envelope with her baby hair, The Buzzer 1927 Hackensack High School newsletter and a host of other memorabilia in her life.

Also in this scrapbook are newsletter from the church dated 1929, a snapper from a party, 1925 junior admission tag for RHS football, a 1924 hand drawn football postcard, Piano Recital at the school leaflet 1925, a Mary Pickford of Haddon Hall pamplet  (which she notes is the first movie she ever saw in New York.), crushed more letters & photos with some documentation beneath. She had all this stored within 10 pages (counting front & back) within this vintage scrapbook.

The rest of the pages are blank about 28 pages more (so you can add your own scrap memorabilia).  An separate envelope of small photos and newspaper clippings is also in the back.

Very interesting to read and collect.  Condition: Papers are yellowed as would be expected of paper 80+ years old. But they have held up well. Front hard cover of the scrap book has a tear in the fabric at the front edge & some spots. Cracks/splits in the hinges but still secure.  Lots of photos of the contents.

Five more advertising postcards of bridges designed and built by the F.R. Long Co. of Hackensack showed up on eBay today. The cards are circa 1907.

I have no idea where these are from, but I would suspect they might be local. If they look familiar to you, please post the info.

The last one looks vaguely reminiscent of the trolley bridge through the Overpeck area between Leonia and Teaneck, but I'm sure there were other ones around too.

I'm just put them all in one post and cleaned up/posted the smaller versions of the images.
