A lifelong resident of Keansburg and its Town Historian, Doug Foulks was primarily responsible for the founding of the Keansburg Historical Society in 1995. After years of his almost daily efforts, its museum opened in 1999 and Foulks continued to collect numerous artifacts, photographs, publications, and other historical materials in the following years. Foulks, a World War II Navy veteran, was also an active member of the Keansburg Fire Company #1 for more than 50 years, including Fire Chief in 1972, and helped plan the building of Keansburg High School.
