HUMANITIES TO GO

Paul Wainwright


  • New England's colonial meetinghouses embody an important yet little-known chapter in American history. 
  • Built mostly with tax money, they served as both places of worship and places for town meetings, and were the centers of life in colonial New England communities.  
  • Paul Wainwright tells the story of the society that built and used them, and the lasting impact they have had on American culture.

Runaway Wives: When Colonial Marriages Failed

When 18th century wives tired of the marriage contract, they could run, but they could not hide. Husbands chased them down via newspaper ads, effectively removing their sources of credit and income. In the vocabulary of the war between the sexes, one reads of surprisingly enduring economic and social barriers to runaway wives. Marcia Schmidt Blaine explores this Colonial era challenge in this illustrated program.
