Nancy Clough spent seven years researching her ancestor, Barton Carter. This presentation will focus on the heroic life of Barton Carter, who turned away from a future laid out for him to fight against Fascism in the Spanish Civil War and disappeared in that fight when he was only 23 years old. Barton’s work with Catalonian orphans is still having an impact in third-world countries today. Nancy will also touch on the history of the Carter family from their arrival in the Nashua area and the continuing growth under their leadership of Nashua Corporation on Franklin Street.

This program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited
