|Title:||Immigration in New England|
Immigration to New England has long been a way of life in the northeastern U.S. Local Scholar Brad Wolff will examine the wide variety of people who have migrated to New England and trace some of the influence those relocations have exerted on the area's culture, economy, and way of life. Reference will be made to circumstances in other parts of the world that encouraged migration, America's well-known reputation as the land of opportunity, and the evolving legal framework governing migration. Data from the 2010 census will be used to investigate what current patterns of immigration exist.
Brad is a retired social studies teacher and former NH Department of Education Social Studies Teacher of the Year. He is a frequent presenter of historical programs in a variety of settings. Brad resides in Moultonborough with his wife Karen.
This presentation is open to anyone interested in this fascinating historical topic.
