Jennie B. Powers – The Woman Who Dares

Presented by:

Jenna Carroll, Education Director of the Cheshire County Historical Society

On April 21st, 2022 at 7:00 PM, the Dublin Historical Society (DHS) will host an on-line presentation by Jenna Carroll, titled “Jennie B. Powers – The Woman Who Dares.”  This one-hour illustrated presentation introduces us to Jennie’s life story, the work of humane societies at the turn of the twentieth century, and the politics of the Progressive Era (1890s-1920s) from a local perspective.  She was a humane society agent in Keene from 1903-1936 and one of the first women to become a deputy sheriff in New Hampshire.

Jennie took a stand against social vices in New Hampshire and Vermont in the early twentieth century.  As a photographic activist, she used her camera to document animal cruelty, family violence, and wide-spread poverty in New Hampshire’s Monadnock region and beyond.

 This event is presented by New Hampshire Humanities To Go.  Please join us!
