Aquinas Club

The AQUINAS CLUB appears to have been a social club that existed in North Camden prior to World War I. My best guess is that it consisted mostly or entirely of young Catholic men from the Holy Name parish, although there also were a few older members. The club apparently disbanded around 1915.

Bail Is Denied Roxie Allen in Robbery of 15 in Craps Game

Identified as four of the five bandits who held up and robbed 15 men at a craps game in a Landisville poolroom yesterday, Roxie Allen, well-known South Jersey boxer, and three other South Camden youths are under arrest today.

It continued hardly fifteen minutes, but, in that time more havoc was wrought than by any storm that has ever visited that section, even including the locally historic cyclone of 1885.
