The Local History Guild returns on AHA! night – a monthly gathering to hear area experts discuss topics of interest, trends, initiatives, projects, books, and digital resources. Curator of Maritime History Michael Dyer moderated February’s discussion about “The Westport and Dartmouth Milieu in the Age of Paul Cuffe.” This month’s experts were Robert Harding, Ph.D. from the Dartmouth Historical and Arts Society and Richard Gifford, an independent scholar from Westport.
