Remembering Bruce Fraser

Bruce Fraser, who became executive director of the Connecticut Humanities Council in 1982 and built it into a national example of how a state can promote its history, died recently after a long battle with cancer.

The history magazine Connecticut Explored has posted on its site a moving tribute to Fraser from State Historian Walter Woodward. "For the last 30 years," Woodward writes, "virtually every history program of substance produced in Connecticut could have carried the credit line, 'Brought to you in part by Bruce Fraser.'"
