Welcome!

Connecticut has played a uniquely important role in the creation of United States culture. Because we were one of the first colonies, and because we sent so many sons and daughters to be the seed stock of other states, Connecticut’s story is truly, and deeply, the American story in every way. As Connecticut’s State Historian from 2004 to 2022, I was honored to play a part in keeping our past alive and vital.  In retirement, and as state historian emeritus, I hope to continue, in a more relaxed and personal way, sharing my love and appreciation for this wonderful state and its history.

I am especially grateful for  the generous support of the Sue B. Hart Foundation, which has made so much of my work possible.
