His many accomplishments could fill a book. Well known throughout the state, Al has spent much of his career dedicated to the history of Rhode Island, 30 years serving as Executive Director of the RI Historical Society. Under his watch, the Society developed the Museum of Work & Culture in Woonsocket, as well as acquired the home of former U.S. Ambassador to England, Winthrop Aldrich. For 30 years, he promoted establishing a state history museum at the former South Street Power Plant in Providence. During this effort, he helped to define the scope of over 200 topics of Rhode Island history into "The Six Big Ideas of RI History. A prolific writer, Al also managed the publication of thirteen volumes of The Papers of Major General Nathanael Greene and two volumes of The Correspondence of Roger Williams. He has become quite the expert on the history of Lincoln and the Blackstone Valley, and was hired by the Town to do studies on the use of Chase Farm and the Hannaway Shop as well as the Moffett Mill. He was also one of the first guides at the Wilbur Kelly House and has helped to develop that museum about the Blackstone Canal and early days of Lonsdale and Ashton.
Additionally, Al began an archive of local television news film and oversaw the microfilming of all the newspapers of Rhode Island up to the year 2000.
Besides serving on Hearthside's board of directors for the past two years, Al has also served on the boards of several local historical groups and was a founding incorporator of the RI Black Heritage Society. He also serves on the National Council of the American Association of State and Local History.
