Timelines is proud to announce the publication of a commemorative history for The Merion Cricket Club located in Haverford, Pennsylvania. Entitled The Merion Cricket Club: A History 1865-2015, the shipment of 3,000 copies of the 112-page, hard cover book was delivered in October 2015.
The Merion project commenced in March 2013 and was completed in approximately two and a half years from concept creation to delivery of the final product. Timelines, working in conjunction with Merion’s book committee and club management, conducted more than thirty oral histories with select club members and officials, mined the club’s board minutes for valuable nuggets of information from Merion’s founding days to the present, produced the written manuscript, and edited through hundreds of archival photographs and modern day images for inclusion in the book.
The project culminated with a talk and slideshow given by George Brown to about 150 Merion members followed by a book signing at the club’s Founders Day festivities on December 16, 2015.
