Shaping Hartford Culture Through Three Generations Of Women
Emily Holcombe, Elizabeth Colt, and The Friends Of Twain
Today, we’re going to delve into a bit of Connecticut History that you may not know, and later, the story of a group of determined women who saved and preserved Hartford’s Mark Twain House.
We’ll also talk about how we talk about ourselves. Charley Monagan, who just left Connecticut Magazine, wrote a piece called “Who We Are” in the latest issue. It’s a look at Connecticut’s longstanding inferiority complex and how we brand ourselves.
But first, we want to welcome back Connecticut historian Bill Hosley He’ll be giving a lecture: Emily S.G. Holcombe: Champion of Connecticut State Pride and the Connecticut Historical Society on March 20 at 5:30PM.
And that’s where we start today. Who was Emily Holcombe?
