Mayor James W Kelly, Jr

James W Kelly, Jr. was the first mayor in the history of East Orange elected as a Democrat.

Mayor Kelly was born about 1908, and, according to one source, died in 1990.

While a student at Stockton School in 1959, I was one of a group of three students who interviewed Mayor Kelly for the Stockton School newspaper.
