My interests[edit]


I have longstanding interest in photography; New England history; architecture; and travel. I've been doing photography since about 1984.

Wiki Loves Monuments[edit]

I was delighted to participate in the 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017 "Wiki Loves Monuments" WikiProjects. I contributed photos both in the New England area where I live, but also in places I traveled to. I am gratified to have been selected as the third place winner in the 2012 Wiki Loves Monuments U.S. contest.

19th-century New England[edit]

Most recently, I've started to write articles on people and places of 19th Century New England.

  • William S. Flynn (1885–1966); added details of his governorship in what was a stub; Jan 20116

  • Robert E. Quinn (1894–1975); added details about his time in the State Senate
