Dr. Dale Kuehne, chair of the Department of Ethics, Economics, and the Common Good at St. Anselm’s College, Manchester, NH.

At the reception following the talk, you will be able to see Puritan Boston weekday dresses from three socioeconomic classes in 1635.  These garments are hand-sewn by Dame Ruby-Grace Miller and will be displayed and contrasted with a Virginia gown of the same period.
