Professor Michael Birkner '72, was quoted in a recent Concord Monitor editorial about the mystery of Styles Bridges's money.
From the Concord Monitor:
In researching a book about a different political figure, Birkner conducted an interview in 1988 with Dick Upton, the former speaker of the New Hampshire House and, as Birkner describes him, the single most respected establishment figure in state politics in his day. Upton told Birkner a slightly different story about the mystery of Bridges’s money.
“What he told me was this: Yes, Bridges had money stashed away. Yes, Doloris Bridges was concerned about what to do with it. Yes, she came to him – Upton – and asked what to do with it.”
