NJ what about Mass?

In 1936 , there was a 12 year old boy killed while swimming off of Matapoisett, Ma.It was about an 8 foot white shark. They are sure it was a white shark cause they got a white shark's tooth out of the boy's body. I am not sure, but I think the tooth is on display somewhere. Getting old and I don't remember where I read it. The NJ attack was up Matawan Creek, I think I read about that in a book called "Shark Attack" around the time of the Jaws Movie. Around 1970 in Charlestown Breachway, one of the RI Park Police shot about a 14 foot shark, one of the harmless species that shouldn't have been killed.
