The Governor Francis P. Murphy Estate in Newport, NH has been researching & reacquiring artifacts and materials related to New Hampshire Governor Francis P. Murphy for the past 4 years. Their goal is to launch a museum dedicated to the governor's life and contributions to the state, both in his political and private life.
As well as being governor, Murphy was the founder of WMUR, and co-founder of Thom McAn Shoes. Although having a rich background in the Granite State, he has been essentially forgotten.
A series of talks about Governor Murphy, sponsored by The Richards Free Library & The Library Arts Center in Newport, NH have started. The talks are enriched with family photos, as well as audio and video reels.
The next event will be on Saturday, June 10th at 3:00 pm at the Library Arts Center in Newport, New Hampshire. If you're interested in attending this talk, you can read more about it here at The Governor Francis P. Murphy Estate facebook page.
There is also a short video to promote the event here
