I moved to Brookline, Massachusetts, with my family in 1996. In 2005, after doing a presentation and walking tour for the Brookline Historical Society, I was invited to join the Society’s board. In 2009, I became president. I have engaged in a wide variety of Brookline-related research, writing, presentations, walking tours, and other activities over the years.
This page provides links to many of those activities. Many more resources are available on the website of the Brookline Historical Society.
