Scope and Content:
The Bonnie Josephine papers consist of one folder of pamphlets and programs from various Atlantic City social, athletic, veterans, and fraternal organizations. The organizations within the collection include: the Atlantic City Tuna Club, the Akiba Club, the Army and Navy Union, the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, the Elks Lodge No. 276, and the Superior Police Officers Association. The collection also includes one copy of the Atlantic County Yearbook and one copy of an Atlantic City Host entertainment guide.

Biographical information about Bonnie Josephine, and her relation to the Atlantic City Free Public Library, is unknown. The Bonnie Josephine Papers were once housed with the ACFPL Scrapbooks Collection (H035). Archival staff at ACFPL disassociated the Bonnie Josephine Papers from the ACFPL Scrapbooks Collection when the Scrapbooks Collection was processed in August, 2011.

Given the brevity of the collection’s extent, the Bonnie Josephine Papers are housed in a box along with the Gladys Lody Papers (H074), the Ed Davis Papers (H075), and the WPG Radio Collection (H077).
