'The New England Town'

KENSINGTON – Jere Daniell will give a presentation on “The New England Town “with an emphasis on Kensington. The event will be held at the Kensington Public Library on Wed., June 19, at 7:00 p.m., 126 Amesbury Road in Kensington, and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Co-hosted by the Kensington Historical Society and the Kensington Public Library, this event is made possible by a grant from the NH Humanities Council. The New Hampshire Humanities Council nurtures the joy of learning and inspires community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire.

A retired Dartmouth College history professor, Jere Daniell taught courses on Colonial America, the American Revolution, the History of New England, and the New England Town. He’s lectured in about three quarters of the state’s 235 towns and cities, frequently on the history of the community where he’s speaking. Daniell’s formal education reflects his regionalism. He graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy and from Dartmouth. He trained at Harvard to become a historian and in 1964 received a PhD.
