Online Lecture:  “Writing Local History,” presented by Dustin Griffin

You are invited to an online webinar
“Writing Local History” by Dustin Griffin
Saturday, June 19, 11 a.m.

In this informal webinar, Griffin will share his processes and sources. The webinar will cover choosing a topic, gathering evidence, and organizing that evidence into a story. Using slides, Griffin will demonstrate some of the many printed sources and primary materials that are available to any researcher, many of them in the collection of the Williamstown Historical Museum.

“It’s my hope that this talk may inspire some in the audience to do their own research and writing, making use of the rich materials available,” Griffin said.

Dustin Griffin is the author of Williamstown and Williams College: Explorations in Local History (2018). For a number of years he has presented talks on local history to Williamstown audiences, most recently a lecture on “The Chadwells of Williamstown” in November 2020 and “The History of Oblong Road” in April 2021. His new book, Williamstown and Williams College: Further Explorations in Local History, was published this month, and is available at the Williams College bookstore on Spring Street and at the Williamstown Historical Museum.
