Meet the Author


"An uncommon transformation" is the phrase used by archivists William E. Ross and Thomas M. House to describe the changes the small town of Durham has experienced over the years. As we approach the end of a millennium, this new book looks back at over a century of Durham's history and its significant and intricate relationships, first with the rural countryside, and later with the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, which moved from Hanover to Durham in 1893.
