The Librarian’s Brother, Part I

Upon the 1921 founding of Windsor Historical Society, the very first donation to our collections came from brothers Charles and George Hoadley. When George died the next year, his will included a $5,000 bequest to the Society. But neither brother ever lived in Windsor, and they only had a tangential relationship to the town. This article attempts to tell the story of two donors whose contributions became the foundation of WHS’s collections.
