A New England Town With Ken Lockridge

Professor Ken Lockridge

Broadcast Time: THURSDAY, 29 November 2012 at 1:00pm EST

In 1970 Professor Ken Lockridge published a book called A New England Town: The First Hundred Years. This book established an innovative way to examine and interpret developing 17th century New England towns. The book allowed us to look at these early colonists as people rather than simply names and dates. In addition, works published at the same time by his colleagues Demos, Greven and Zuckerman helped set off a new interest in the history of early America.

Join Marian Pierre-Louis, host of Fieldstone Common, as she discusses the start of Professor Lockridge’s career with A New England Town and then progresses through 40 years of his fascinating historical projects.
