Imagine a day when you can “invite” yourself to join a conversation between two of Camden’s most notable historic figures by sitting on a bench outside the Camden Archives and Museum. You would be facing baseball legend Larry Doby, standing up to sign a baseball for Bernard Baruch, who was primarily responsible for funding what would later become KershawHealth. Baruch would be sitting on a bench opposite you, reading a book.
