From 1989 to 2001 I served as Humanities Scholar-in-Residence at Connecticut Public Television and Radio, a position supported by the Connecticut Humanities Council. In that role I researched and wrote the scripts for over twenty documentaries for the Connecticut Experience television program, some of which I also co-produced, which aired on CPTV. As Humanities Scholar-in-Residence I also produced, wrote, and, for many segments, hosted Connecticut Public Radio’s Remembering Connecticut, which broadcast approximately 100 radio programs on a wide variety of Connecticut history topics.
