Walk by the First Baptist Church in Camden and you’ll notice a sign marking the birthplace of Bernard Baruch, who went on to earn millions on Wall Street and become an advisor to presidents. But ask many Camdenites today about Baruch and they’ll have little idea what he did, despite the fact that he’s recently been memorialized by a statue in front of the Camden Archives. Baruch was an astute investor.
