The Institute of Connecticut History was formed to restore the rich spiritual legacy left to us by the men and women who lived and died in our state during its first three centuries. To our great loss the brooms of political correctness have swept away much of the wealth of our historical inheritance. We are dedicated to retrieving and presenting the vibrant stories and ideals of Connecticut's past generations, under the same quickening intelligent and courageous spirit that inspired and moved them.
Thomas Berrill, founder of the Institute of Connecticut History, has a Bachelor's Degree in History, with a concentration in Connecticut History from Charter Oak State College. He has been a Historical Interpreter at the Noah Webster House in West Hartford, a Tour Guide at the Keeler Tavern Museum in Ridgefield and he archived letters in the collections department at the Harriet Beecher Stowe House.
Tom and his wife Deborah continue to explore and find many golden nuggets of Connecticut History.
