Elizabeth J. (“Liz”) Rosenthal is honored to be invited to serve on the Board of Trustees of the Historical Society of Moorestown. She recently retired from 28 years of service in New Jersey State government as legal liaison for the Civil Service Commission. Liz is also the author of two books. The most recent is Birdwatcher: The Life of Roger Tory Peterson, which has just been re-released in paperback and e-book by the Lyons Press, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield. Her first book was His Song: The Musical Journey of Elton John (Billboard Books, 2001).

After graduating magna cum laude in 1982 from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications, Liz attended Rutgers-Camden School of Law, graduating with Honors in 1985. Subsequently, she was admitted to the bars of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In 1986, she married Stan Shur, another Rutgers law graduate, who has served many years as an attorney with the New Jersey Office of the Public Defender. This year they will be celebrating 30 years of marriage.

Speaker Series Grant

The Historical Society of Moorestown is deeply grateful for the generous grant of $2500 made by the Elizabeth Tuttle Fund. It is designated for the support of the Society’s NJ History Speaker Series and will make it possible to offer interesting and educational presentations on a variety of subjects pertaining to the history of our state.
