A storied tradition in northern New England, and in New Hampshire especially. This week I found an old interview with Dartmouth College professor of history, </span>Jere<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> </span>Daniell<span style="line-height: 1.5;">. He spoke with an unidentified </span>NHPR<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> reporter in July, 1994. </span>Daniell<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> has made close study of our town meeting and the history of the institution.</span></p> Thu, 13 Mar 2014 17:12:19 +0000 Andrew Parrella 45025 at http://nhpr.org From The Archives: Town Meeting; Killington Secedes From The Archives: Rev. Gene Robinson http://nhpr.org/post/archives-rev-gene-robinson <p>Ten years ago this week, Rev. Gene Robinson officially became the first openly gay bishop in history. He was elected in June, 2003 and on 7 March, 2004 &nbsp;he was "invested" at a ceremony where the previous bishop (Rev. Douglas Theuner) formally handed the shepherd's crook to him.</p> Wed, 05 Mar 2014 15:14:50 +0000 Andrew Parrella 44562 at http://nhpr.org From The Archives: Rev. Gene Robinson From The Archives: 1984 N.H. Primary http://nhpr.org/post/archives-1984-nh-primary <p>Today marks thirty years since the 1984 New Hampshire primary. It’s a contest not well remembered today – on the Republican side, President Ronald Reagan was running essentially unopposed, and the man who won the Democratic nomination, Walter Mondale, not only lost the New Hampshire primary, he lost the general election in a landslide.</p> Fri, 28 Feb 2014 15:18:27 +0000 Andrew Parrella 44321 at http://nhpr.org From The Archives: 1984 N.H.
