Thank you for remembering Bruce Fraser’s legacy with a contribution today.
Bruce Fraser led Connecticut Humanities for 30 years as its executive director before his untimely passing in 2010. Bruce believed passionately that the humanities hold the key to productive and meaningful lives. He dedicated his professional life to creating opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in the reflection, informed debate, and critical thinking at the heart of the humanities.
Perhaps Bruce’s greatest achievement was ConnecticutHistory.org, a website that features stories about the people, traditions, innovations, and events that define the Nutmeg State. You can browse concise essays — by town, topic, or person — that are a timely mix of fun and fact, famous and obscure, surprising and serious.
ConnecticutHistory.org connects readers instantly with images, documents, and objects housed at heritage organizations throughout the state.
