The Men and Women Who Made a Memorable Impact
on Our Home Town, Nutley, New Jersey

By Anthony Buccino

Our second volume about Nutley notables, the more than one-hundred people profiled
here made a memorable impact on Nutley, New Jersey, throughout history to today.

The township of Nutley, New Jersey, has accumulated a wealth of celebrated and eccentric people who over-shadowed the salt-of-the-earth folks who lived here, raised their families and built the town into the place that Norman Rockwell only dreamed of illustrating for the cover of the Saturday Evening Post.

We’ve co-mingled the people with the history of our town and although you might think you know your Nutley history, there are bound to be more than a few surprises here.

Published by Cherry Blossom Press, ISBN 978-1728689487, 132 pages.

WW2 Letters Home from the South Pacific by Angelo BuccinoWW2 Letters Home From The South Pacific

By Angelo Buccino

WW2 Letters Home from the South Pacific by Pfc. Angelo Buccino is one GI’s view of the war amid the heat, bugs, carnage, and noise in an artillery battalion supporting First Marine Division at Guadalcanal and other islands that never get mentioned.

Buccino wrote these long-lost letters to his best friend back in the states, asking about the old gang from town. These missives turned up nearly sixty years after they were mailed, censored, read by his buddy and then forgotten footlocker in his old friend’s attic.

Along with a stack of Angelo’s photos from training, home, and across the ocean, we’ve put together this collection in time for his 100th birthday. The war aged him, and he passed in his sixth decade.

Here is a way to remember him, his sense of duty, his sense of humor, and the years he spent on hot, bug-infested islands defending all he left at home.
