More than twenty years ago Carolyn got to know Al at the Rhode Island Historical Society where Al served as Executive Director, 1969 through 1999.
During 1974-1994, Al served as Adjunct Professor of History at University of R.I. and Providence College, Rhode Island College, Salve Regina University, Brown University.
Since 1960 he
has published more than fifteen works, including reviews in New England Quarterly and William and Mary Quarterly.
Carolyn recalls, "In the mid-1980s, Al had a vision that led to the development of Heritage Harbor, Rhode Island's first state-wide history museum, where he then served as Director of Museum and Program from 1999-2003.
After a brief pause Carolyn added, "In a recent historic roast, Al
was not only honored for his historical achievements and sensitivity to ethnically and culturally diverse communities throughout Rhode Island but also recognized as one of Rhode Island's premier humorists - - he has a delightful sense of humor!"
