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.

 An Hour With

Dick Winslow

For more than one hundred years the Winslow family has contributed to the rich cultural life of the Antrim community.

In April, 1913 Ralph G. Winslow, Dick Winslow’s father and fellow composer, conducted the eighty-voice Antrim Choral Society in a performance of the cantata, Joan of Arc. Some four hundred devotees attended

In September, 1939 Dick Winslow, (or more formally, Professor Emeritus Richard Winslow of the Department of Music, Wesleyan University), then a Wesleyan senior, led a cast and crew of more than fifty in an Antrim Town Hall production of the Pirates of Penzance.

Please join Dick Winslow and the Antrim Historical Society on Sunday, June 22nd, as he reminisces about the first two-thirds of his Antrim experience, the summering years.
