Welcome to our summer Explorer pages - a 10-week series focusing on New Jersey athletes, performers, scientists and writers.

Each page looks at the accomplishments of famous New Jersey residents. Past Explorer series have examined the wonders of southern New Jersey and how people work and play in our part of the state.

New Explorer pages will appear here each Monday this summer and in The Press of Atlantic City.
