My interests[edit]


I have longtime interest in photography, New England history, architecture, and travel. I've been doing photography since about 1984. Some of my favorite subjects are Civil War memorials, historic downtowns, and colleges.

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]

I've started to written and contributed to several articles on people and places of 19th Century New England. In particular, I created or fleshed out articles on many of the mayors of Providence (and photographed one).
