Kimball Library News 2/2/15

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ROBERT FROST: The Robert Frost Farm in Derry, NH was home to Robert Frost and his family from 1900-1911. Frost, one of the nation’s most acclaimed poets whose writings are said to be the epitome of New England, attributed many of his poems to memories from the Derry years.
Mr. Reusch was a Haverhill middle school teacher for over 40 years teaching the early history of Haverhill, John Greenleaf Whitttier, Robert Frost, and Norman Rockwell.  He teaches Life-Long Learning classes at Northern Essex Community College and gives presentations throughout the Merrimack Valley.

Mr. Reusch was named Curator of the Whittier Birthplace six years ago.  He gives tours of Whittier’s Birthplace (Haverhill, MA) to local visitors and visitors from many parts of the world.
