Selected Articles, 1940 - 1949

From time to time patrons ask the librarians of the Vermont Historical Society to create electronic files of articles that were published in Vermont History prior to 2000. In the belief that these articles may be of interest to a broader audience, we are making these articles available through this web site. This section will grow over time to include the most popular articles published in Vermont History as determined by requests from the public.
