Leach Library to Host “Timekeeping and the Timekeepers in Early New England”

On Thursday, December 8 at 7:00 p.m., the Leach Library will host Mr. Bob Frishman’s presentation, “Timekeeping and Timekeepers in Early New England”.

Mr. Frishman has repaired, restored, and sold antique clocks for more than thirty-three years.  A graduate from George Washington University, he is a past-president of New England Chapter 8 of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) and the founder of Bell-Time Clocks in Andover, Massachusetts.

With more than 100 digital images, Mr. Frishman’s lecture will offer a history of clocks and watches in New England beginning with the arrival of the Mayflower up to the adoption of standard time by the railroads in the late 19th century.  The lecture will be followed by an informal appraisal session when attendee clocks can be identified and evaluated.

The event is free and open to the public with seating limited to the first 90 individuals.  It will be held in the library’s lower-level Meeting Room.  Light refreshments will be served.
