"Wallace Nutting: A Search for New England's Past"
At the beginning of the twentieth century, Wallace Nutting (1861-1944) emerged as a popular photographer whose pictures of farm life, rural beauty, old houses and colonial interiors earned him a national reputation. As a leading spokesman for the Colonial Revival and Country Life Movements, Nutting rapidly expanded his involvements to include antique furniture collecting, reproduction furniture manufacturing, and the writing and publishing of books on New England travel and antiques. No figure in this century has done more to advance the study and public awareness of early American life. This lecture provides an overview of Nutting's remarkable career, from his beginnings as a minister in Providence, Rhode Island through his years in Southbury, Connecticut where he first achieved national recognition, to his final years at the helm of a vast Colonial Revival business empire based in Framingham, MA
