“…my cousin Don and I were both very impressed not only by [the docent’s] knowledge, by also by his magnificent ability to connect with us as we experienced a place where our family trod during the American Revolution. I was overwhelmed by the picture of Matthewis Persen because of his family resemblance. I could actually see my dad and grandfather in his face—Amazing!” Richard Persen, Descendant of Matthewis Persen, 2015
“The students [from Utrecht University in the Netherlands] were visiting Rutgers University as part of an exchange with our Honors Program celebrating the deep roots of Rutgers in Dutch culture.
