The Friends of Fort Trumbull S.P. to present Robert Richter, author of; Fort Trumbull Conference Center, 90 Walbach St., New London, CT , 06320

On July 31, 2014, Robert Richter will continue The Friends of Fort Trumbull’s presentation of “The Whaling City and the Sea”, by discussing Eugene O’Neill, one of New London’s most famous residents. Mr. Richter, a graduate of Connecticut College, is the Director of Arts Programming at the College. In addition, he consults for museums and historical societies on staff training, public program development, and the implementation of performance-based programs.

As an author, he has written many books on Eugene O’Neill. In 2001, he wrote Touring Eugene O’Neill’s New London, a guide which will introduce area residents and visitors to the local places connected with O’Neill’s life. His next book,
Eugene O’Neill and Dat ole Davil Sea, was a finalist for the 2005 Connecticut Book Award. In this book, Mr. Richter examines the influences on O’Neill of the maritime history of New London, his experiences in sailing and steamships, and his Provincetown experiences.

The presentation will take place in the Fort Trumbull Conference Center on 90 Walbach St., New London, at 7 p.m. The public is invited, but seating is limited. New members are always welcome. Refreshments will follow the presentation.
