ANNUAL MEETING 
Tuesday, June 8, 2021, 10:00AM
via Zoom

 

GUEST SPEAKER WALTER WOODWARD

Connecticut State Historian

EVENTS THAT SHAPED OUR LIVES



Walter Woodward is Connecticut’s current State Historian, an Associate Professor of History at the University of Connecticut, narrator/producer of Today in Connecticut History and author of the “From the State Historian” column in Connecticut Explored.  Professor Woodward is a scholar of Early American and Atlantic World history, with an emphasis on Connecticut and New England.  His research interests cover a variety of subjects, including witchcraft, alchemy and the history of science, the use of music in Early America, and environmental history.

In his new book, “Creating Connecticut” and in his lectures, Prof. Woodward helps us understand how people and events in Connecticut’s past played crucial roles in forming the culture and character of Connecticut today.  A gifted story-teller, he brings to life in new ways the history we thought we knew from the nearly forgotten early presence of the Dutch, to the time when Connecticut was New England’s fiercest prosecutor of witches, the decades when Nutmeggers were rapidly leaving the state, and the years when Irish immigrants were hurrying into it.  Whether it’s his investigation into the unusually rough justice meted out to Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale, or a peek into Mark Twain’s smoking habits, Prof. Woodward will leave you thinking about our state’s past––and its future––in a whole new way.
