Information sought about Robert Caughey

A number of years ago, Robert Caughey, (1914-1994) a lifelong resident of Antrim, made many contributions to the livelihood of Antrim.  He held numerous patents, including several in the press wood/chip wood business. His lab and three-shift business on Water Street provided employment for many local residents for many years.

We are interested in any anecdotal or historical material and information relating to his accomplishments. Rod Zwirner is interested in collecting and cataloging this history. If you have anything to share, please contact Rod at (603) 588-2879 or Thelma Nichols at (603) 588-6766.

The Antrim Historical Society is honored to host a presentation by Richard Rubin, author of THE LAST OF THE DOUGHBOYS: Their Forgotten Generation and Their Forgotten War.

3:00 pm Sunday, November 19, 2017, at the Antrim Presbyterian Church


In 2003 Richard Rubin began his search for the remaining veterans of World War I.  

(All have passed now.)  His book is a combination of the history of the times and the  memories of veterans of the 'War to End All Wars'.  He interviewed dozens of foot soldiers, nurses, and ambulance personnel.  Rubin's presentation will highlight several members of the American Expeditionary Forces in Europe and will tell the story of World War I through the eyes of these veterans.


Copies of THE LAST OF THE DOUGHBOYS and BACK OVER THERE:  ONE AMERICAN TIME TRAVELER, 100 YEARS SINCE THE GREAT WAR, 500 MILES OF BATTLE-SCARRED FRENCH COUNTRY SIDE, AND TOO MANY TRENCHES, SHELLS, LEGENDS, AND GHOSTS TO COUNT will be available for purchase and autographing.


In addition,  there will be a brief business meeting at 2:30 PM before   the presentation.
