PREFACE 



In publishing this 1948 edition of the Connecticut Register and 
Manual we return to the pre-war custom of annual editions, made 
mandatory by the Statutes. 

In this edition we have omitted certain items which will be found 
in the 1947 Manual. These include the list of notaries public, 
the Governor's Message to the General Assembly, the committees 
of the General Assembly, and the articles titled "The Passage of a 
Bill" and "A Freshman Legislative Reporter Looks at Connecticut 
Government". 

In an attempt to broaden the usefulness of the Manual we have 
added several new features this year. One of these is the list of 
the Commissioners of Deeds for Connecticut in other states. Another 
is the roster of the Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen of the Republican 
and Democratic Town Committees in the respective towns. 

The list of officials of Towns, Cities and Boroughs is based on 
the latest information available before going to press. 

It is hoped that the Register and Manual will continue to serve 
a useful purpose as a compendium of pertinent information with 
respect to the state. Any comments or suggestions for the inclu- 
sion of material in future editions will be welcomed by this office. 

The preparation of the Register and Manual has been conducted 
by the staff of the Publications Division of the Office of the Secretary 
of the State. In this task they have enjoyed the cooperation of 
Town Clerks, Town Officials, and many others. To all of these 
we extend our thanks and appreciation. 

Frances Burke Redick, 

Secretary of the State.

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 

In Congress, July 4, 1776 



THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION 

of the 

THIRTEEN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for 
one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected 
them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, 
the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of 
nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of 
mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel 
them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created 
equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain 
unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the 
pursuit of happiness. — That to secure these rights, governments 
. are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the 
consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government 
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to 
alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying 
its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in 
such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety 
and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate, that governments 
long established, should not be changed for light and transient 
causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind 
are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right 
themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invari- 
ably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under abso- 
lute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such 
government, and to provide new guards for their future security. 
Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such 
is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former 
systems of government. The history of the present King of Great- 
Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having 
in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over 
these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid 
world. 

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and 
necessary for the public good. 

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and 
pressing importance, unless suspended in their operations till his 

(5) 



b DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 

assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly 
neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of 
large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the 
right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to 
them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, 
uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public 
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance 
with his measures. 

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing 
with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause 
others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of 
annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; 
the State remaining, in the meantime, exposed to all the dangers 
of invasion from without, and convulsions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; 
for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; 
refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and 
raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands. 

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing 
his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure 
of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms 
of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, with- 
out the consent of our legislatures. 

He has affected to render the military independent of and 
superior to the civil power. 

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction 
foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; 
giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation : 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 

For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any 
murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these 
States: 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world: 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent: 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury: 

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offences: 

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring 
province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and en- 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 7 

larging its boundaries, so as to render it at once an example and 
fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these 
Colonies: 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable 
laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments: 

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves 
invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his 
protection, and waging war against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt out towns, 
and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is, at this time, transporting large armies of foreign mer- 
cenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, 
already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy, scarcely 
paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the 
head of a civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken captive on the 
high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the execu- 
tioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their 
hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has en- 
deavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless 
Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished 
destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress 
in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been 
answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is 
thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to 
be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. 
We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their 
legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We 
have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and 
settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and 
magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our com- 
mon kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably 
interrupt our connexions and correspondence. They too have 
been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, 
therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separa- 
tion, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in 
war, in peace friends. 

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of 
America, in General Congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme 
Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the 
name, and by authority of the good people of these Colonies, 



8 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 



solemnly publish and declare, that these United Colonies are, 
and of right ought to be, free and independent States; that they 
are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all 
political connexion between them and the State of Great-Britain, 
is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; and that as free and independent 
States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract 
alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things 
which independent States may of right do. And for the support 
of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine 
Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, 
and our sacred honour.

THE FIRST CONSTITUTION 
OF CONNECTICUT 

The "Fundamental Orders," 1638-9. 

"Voted" January 14, 1638, the Fundamental Orders were the 
beginning of Connecticut as a commonwealth. Their spirit was 
that of a sermon preached by the Rev. Thomas Hooker a short time 
before their adoption, in the course of which he laid down the 
proposition "The foundation of authority is laid in the free consent 
of the people", and which he closed with the challenge: "As God 
has given us liberty let us take it." They recognized no allegiance 
on the part of the colonists to England but in effect set up an 
independent government. In the sense that they were intended to 
be a framework of government more permanent than the usual 
orders adopted by the General Court, they were in essence a 
constitution. The historian John Fiske was justified in his state- 
ment that this instrument was "the first written constitution 
known to history that created a government and it marked the 
beginning of American democracy." While in 1662 the Funda- 
mental Orders were in a sense superseded by the charter, that 
document, drawn up in the colony and taken to England by its 
representative, was never regarded by the colonists as the source 
of their government, but as a protection for and quaranty of the 
government they had already set up for themselves. So it was 
that for forty years after the independence of this nation, Connect- 
icut could still carry on its government under the charter. And so 
it is that this commonwealth has preserved a continuity of develop- 
ment beyond that of almost any other state or nation in the world.

Forasmuch as it hath pleased the Almighty God by the wise 
disposition of his divine providence so to order and dispose of 
things that we the Inhabitants and Residents of Windsor, Hart- 
ford, and Wethersfield are now cohabiting and dwelling in and 
upon the River of Connectecotte and the lands thereunto adjoin- 
ing; and well knowing where a people are gathered together the 
word of God requires that to maintain the peace and union of such 
a people there should be an orderly and decent Government estab- 
lished according to God, to order and dispose of the affairs of the 
people at all seasons as occasion shall require; do therefore asso- 
ciate and conjoin ourselves to be as one Public State or Common- 
wealth; and do for ourselves and our Successors and such as shall 
be adjoined to us at any time hereafter, enter into Combination 
and Confederation together, to maintain and preserve the liberty 
and purity of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus which we now profess, 
as also the discipline of the Churches, which according to the 
truth of the said Gospel is now practiced amongst us; as also in

our Civil affairs to be guided and governed according to such 
Laws, Rules, Orders, and Decrees as shall be made, ordered, and 
decreed as folio weth: — 

1. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that there shall be 
yearly two General Assemblies or Courts, the one the second 
Thursday in April, the other the second Thursday in September

shall be yearly chosen from time to time so many Magistrates and 
other public Officers as shall be found requisite: Whereof one to

that purpose, shall have power to administer justice according to 
the Laws here established, and for want thereof, according to 
the rule of the Word of God; which choice shall be made by all 
that are admitted freemen and have taken the Oath of Fidelity, 
and do cohabit within this Jurisdiction (*Having been admitted 
Inhabitants by the major part of the Town wherein they live) or 
the major part of such as shall be then present. 

2. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that the Election of 
the aforesaid Magistrates shall be on this manner: every person 
present and qualified for choice shall bring in (to the persons 
deputed to receive them) one single paper with the name of him 
written in it whom he desires to have Governor, and he that hath 
the greatest number of papers shall be Governor for that year. And 
the rest of the Magistrates or public officers to be chosen in this 
manner: the Secretary for the time being shall first read the names 
of all that are to be put to choice and then shall severally nominate 
them distinctly, and every one that would have the person nomi- 
nated to be chosen shall bring in one single paper written upon, 
and he that would not have him chosen shall bring in a blank; and 
every one that hath more written papers than blanks shall be a 
Magistrate for that year; which papers shall be received and told 
by one or more that shall be then chosen by the court and sworn 
to be faithful therein; but in case there should not be six chosen 
as aforesaid, besides the Governor, out of those which are nomi- 
nated, then he or they which have the most written papers shall 
be a Magistrate or Magistrates for the ensuing year, to make up 
the aforesaid number. 

3. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that the Secretary 
shall not nominate any person, nor shall any person be chosen 
newly into the Magistracy which was not propounded in some 
General Court before, to be nominated the next Election; and 
to that end it shall be lawful for each of the Towns aforesaid by 
their deputies to nominate any two whom they conceive fit to be 
put to election; and the Court may add so many more as they 
judge requisite. 

* This clause was interlined in a different handwriting, and is of a later date. 
It was adopted by the General Court of November, 1643. 



FIRST CONSTITUTION OF CONNECTICUT 29

5. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that to the aforesaid 
Court of Election the several Towns shall send their deputies, and

occasion, which concerns the good of the Commonwealth. 

6. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that the Governor 
shall, either by himself or by the Secretary, send out summons to 
the Constables of every Town for the calling of these two standing 
Courts one month at least before their several times: And also

upon any special occasion to call a General Court, they may give 
order to the Secretary so to do within fourteen days' warning: 
and if urgent necessity so require, upon a shorter notice, giving 
sufficient grounds for it to the deputies when they meet, or else 
be questioned for the same; And if the Governor and major part 
of Magistrates shall either neglect or refuse to call the two General 
standing Courts or either of them, as also at other times when the 
occasions of the Commonwealth require, the Freemen thereof, or 
the major part of them, shall petition to them so to do; if then 
it be either denied or neglected, the said Freemen, or the major 
part of them, shall have power to give order to the Constables of 
the several Towns to do the same, and so may meet together, and 
choose to themselves a Moderator, and may proceed to do any 
act of power which any other General Courts may. 

7. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that after there are 
warrants given out for any of the said General Courts, the Consta- 
ble or Constables of each Town shall forthwith give notice distinct- 
ly to the inhabitants of the same, in some public assembly or by 
going or sending from house to house, that at a place and time by 
him or them limited and set, they meet and assemble themselves 
together to elect and choose certain deputies to be at the General 
Court then following to agitate the affairs of the Commonwealth; 
which said deputies shall be chosen by all that are admitted 
Inhabitants in the several Towns and have taken the oath of 
fidelity; provided that none be chosen a Deputy for any General 
Court which is not a Freeman of this Commonwealth. 

The aforesaid deputies shall be chosen in manner following: 
every person that is present and qualified as before expressed, 
shall bring the names of such, written in several papers, as they 



30 FIRST CONSTITUTION OF CONNECTICUT 

desire to have chosen for that employment, and these three or 
four, more or less, being the number agreed on to be chosen for 
that time, that have greatest number of papers written for them 
shall be deputies for that Court; whose names shall be endorsed 
on the back side of the warrant and returned into the Court, with 
the constable or constables' hand unto the same. 

8. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that Windsor, Hart- 
ford, and Wethersfield shall have power, each Town, to send four of 
their Freemen as their deputies to every General Court; and 
Whatsoever other Town shall be hereafter added to this Jurisdic- 
tion, they shall send so many deputies as the Court shall judge 
meet, a reasonable proportion to the number of Freemen that are 
in the said Towns being to be attended therein; which deputies 
shall have the power of the whole Town to give their votes and 
allowance to all such laws and orders as may be for the public 
good, and unto which the said Towns are to be bound. 

9. It is Ordered and decreed, that the deputies thus chosen 
shall have power and liberty to appoint a time and a place of meet- 
ing together before any General Court, to advise and consult of 
all such things as may concern the good of the public, as also to 
examine their own Elections, whether according to the order, and 
if they or the greatest part of them find any election to be illegal 
they may seclude such for present from their meeting, and return 
the same and their reasons to the Court; and if it prove true, the 
Court may fine the party or parties so intruding, and the Town, if 
they see cause, and give out a warrant to go to a new election in 
a legal way, either in part or in whole. Also the said deputies 
shall have power to fine any that shall be disorderly at their meet- 
ings, or for not coming in due time or place according to appoint- 
ment; and they may return the said fines into the Court if it be 
refused to be paid, and the Treasurer to take notice of it, and to 
escheat or levy the same as he does other fines. 

10. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that every General 
Court, except such as through neglect of the Governor and the 
greatest part of Magistrates the Freemen themselves do call, shall 
consist of the Governor, or some one chosen to moderate the Court, 
and four other Magistrates at least, with the major part of the 
deputies of the several Towns legally chosen; and in case the Free- 
men, or major part of them, through neglect or refusal of the 
Governor and major part of the Magistrates, shall call a Court, it 
shall consist of the major part of Freemen that are present or 
their deputies, with a Moderator chosen by them: In which said 
General Courts shall consist the supreme power of the Common- 
wealth, and they only shall have power to make laws or repeal 
them, to grant levies, to admit of Freemen, dispose of lands 
undisposed of, to several Towns or persons, and also shall have 
power to call either Court or Magistrate or any other person what- 
soever into question for any misdemeanor, and may for just causes 
displace or deal otherwise according to the nature of the oflense; 
and also may deal in any other matter that concerns the good of

this Commonwealth, except election of Magistrates, which shall

Courts shall be adjourned or dissolved without the consent of the 
major part of the Court.

THE CONSTITUTION OF 
CONNECTICUT* 

As amended and in force July 1, 1948 



Though the people of the state had long acquiesced under the form of govern- 
ment derived from the charter, and sanctioned by the legislature; yet it was 
considered by n any that we had no constitution, as our government under the 
charter had never received the explicit approbation of the people subsequent 
to the declaration of independence. It was also considered to be inconsistent 
with the dignity of a free nation to hold their rights, even nominally by the tenure 
of a Royal Grant and that it was proper the powers of the government should be 
divided into separate departments, and individual rights be secured by a consti- 
tution that should control the legislature itself. It was therefore thought advisable 
to call a convention for that object. Accordingly, in 1818, a convention was 
assembled which agreed upon a constitution. It was submitted to the people, 
and approved by a vote of thirteen thousand nine hundred and eighteen in its 
favor and twelve thousand three hundred and sixty-four against its ratification. 
On the twelfth of October, 1818, Governor Wolcott issued his proclamation, 
at the request of the General Assembly, declaims thai the constitution was thence- 
forth to be observed by all persons, as the Supreme Law of this State. 

On October 1, 1901 a vote was taken as to the calling of a constitutional 
convention for the purpose of revising the constitution. The vote was 47,317 in 
favor and 20,745 against. A convention was held, a revised constitution pro- 
posed and a vote taken June 10, 1902 as to its adoption with the result of 10,377 
for the acceptance of such re\ ision and 21 ,234 against it.

worship, without discrimination, shall forever be free to all per-

Sec. 9. In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall have a 
right to be heard by himself and by counsel; to demand the nature

imposed. 

Sec. 14. All prisoners shall, before conviction, be bailable by 
sufficient sureties, except for capital offences, where the proof is

of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless, when in case 
of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it: nor in 
any case, but by legislature. 

Sec. 15. No person shall be attainted of treason or felony, by 
the legislature. 

Sec. 16. The citizens have a right, in a peaceable manner, to 
assemble for their common good, and to apply to those invested 
with the powers of government, for redress of grievances, or other 
proper purposes, by petition, address or remonstrance. 

Sec. 17. Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defence of

JAMES LUKENS McCONAUGHY 
GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT 

JANUARY 8, 1947— MARCH 7, 1948 

This Register and Manual is dedicated to the memory of 
James Lukens McConaughy, teacher, patriot and governor. 
To his high career of public service he brought wide ex- 
perience, the highest character and an unswerving faith in 
the United States, its people and its institutions. 

His life was dedicated to service — first in the all important 
task of educating youth for leadership— secondly in serving 
his country during war time — and finally as Governor of 
Connecticut. 

He was a friendly man; tolerant, sincere and strong; with 
the mark of a great man in the humbleness of his spirit. 
He was strong in his humility — in his willingness to accept 
blame for others — in his freedom from pomp or vanity — and 
in his desire to consider the other side of a question. 

Governor McConaughy succeeded to the Office of Chief 
Executive on January 8, 1947. World War II was over, but 
the State was faced with a multitude of problems perhaps 
greater than had ever existed before. Reconversion was 
incomplete, tax returns were diminishing, education was 
suffering from lack of teachers and low salaries, welfare institu- 
tions needed modernization and increased facilities, and 
returning veterans required assistance. Governor McConaughy 
faced these problems squarely with never a thought of evasion 
or personal consequence. Under his quiet leadership these 
needs have largely been met. He left a record of accom- 
plishment in the year and two months of his administration 
that has seldom been equalled. 

It is in this manner that he gave his life to the people of 
Connecticut and the nation.

Towns not maintaining vocational agriculture classes were 
eligible for state aid in sending qualified students to a nearby 
school in the above list. Students and parents could legally de- 
mand this opportunity. Arrangements were completed by the 
boards of education directly concerned. This offered educational 
advantages to small schools or those with already crowded facili- 
ties which might otherwise have needed to deprive deserving stu- 
dents of this vocational opportunity. Over twenty per cent of 
day class students during the year attended under general high 
school tuition grants or this special provision for state aid. 

These schools furnished practical and technical instruction in 
farming to adult farmers and younger persons in (1) evening classes, 
(2) part-time classes and (3) day classes. 

Future Farmers in the day classes alone had approximately 
$68,000 invested in their individual supervised farming programs 
and in addition supplied nearly fifty thousand ten hour days of 
labor on general chores and farm work outside of school hours 
and during school vacations.

DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION 

James A. Dorsey, State Supervisor of Distributive Education 
Hartford 

Distributive Education, a division of Vocational Education, 
provides training for those entering the field of distribution as a 
career and for those who are presently employed in a distributive 
occupation such as retailing, wholesaling and the service trades. 
Within the secondary schools its primary purpose is to improve 
the performance of the trainees on the job and provide such in- 
formation as will enable the student to progress more rapidly 
in his chosen field of endeavor. 

Adult extension programs are available to provide current 
methods and procedures in the various phases in the area of dis- 
tribution for those presently employed. 

There are two major classifications of programs in Distributive 
Education: (1) the cooperative part-time course — usually given 
to high school seniors, who devote one-half of their formal instruc- 
tional time to Distributive Education subjects and are required 
to receive occupational experience on the job; such courses are 
now in operation in Bridgeport, Hamden, Meriden, Middletown 
and Norwich. (2) Adult extension courses — which provide train- 
ing for the regularly employed personnel in distributive occupa- 
tions and miscellaneous training programs given during the work 
day for supervisory personnel. 

Such evening extension programs have been operated in Bridge- 
port, Bristol, Danbury, Hartford, Meriden, Middletown, Nauga- 
tuck, New Britain, New Haven, New London, Norwalk, Norwich, 
Putnam, Stamford, Torrington.

TOWNS, CITIES AND BOROUGHS 

The following list of municipal officers and Justices of the Peace was compiled 
from returns filed with the Secretary by the local municipal clerks through July, 
1948. Where the name of the post-office or express office address of the to^n 
clerk, town treasurer or first selectman is other than that of the town itself, it is 
given. 

Statistics of towns, cities and boroughs are also secured from the clerks of the 
several municipalities annually, and upon them we depend for the accuracy of the 
data herein set forth. The area of the towns is taken from the 1902 report of the 
Bureau of Labor Statistics. These are the only complete data available and are 
quoted with the exception of those corrections made by the town clerks. The popu- 
lations of towns are taken from the 1940 United States Census. The children are 
those between the ages of 4 and 16 enumerated September, 1947. The grand lists 
are taken from returns filed with the tax commissioner for the year 1947.

THE AMERICAN FLAG 

THE STATE FLAG 

STATE EMBLEMS 

AND 
STATE BUILDINGS 



THE AMERICAN'S CREED 

(The American's Creed by William Tyler Page was adopted by an act of Congress, 
April 6, 1918.) 

I believe in the United States of America, as a government of 
the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are 
derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a re- 
public; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect 
union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles 
of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American 
patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it 
is my duty to my country to love it, to support its constitution, 
to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all 
enemies. 



THE PLEDGE TO THE FLAG 

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America 

And to the Republic for which it stands, 
One Nation, indivisible, 

With liberty and justice for all." 

The Pledge to the Flag, according to a report of the Historical 
Committee of the United States Flag Association, was written 
by Francis Bellamy (August 1892), a member of the editorial 
staff of The Youth's Companion, in Boston, Massachusetts. It 
was first repeated at the exercises in connection with the celebra- 
tion of Columbus Day, October 12, 1892. 



THE AMERICAN FLAG, ITS ORIGIN 

The desire for a flag to symbolize the pride in a locality or or- 
ganization runs far back into the colonial period. In 1747 flags 
for individual military companies were fairly common. Thus by 
1776 the colonists were accustomed to having their own flags and 
it was but natural that the Continental Congress instruct a com- 
mittee composed of George Washington, Robert Morris and Colonel 
George Ross to devise and produce a flag for the United States. 
This Committee with the probable aid of Betsy Ross designed 
a flag which is the basis of our present national flag. On June 
14, 1777, this flag was officially adopted by the passage of the follow- 
ing resolution: 

' 'Resolved, that the flag of the thirteen United States 
be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that 
the union be thirteen stars, white on a blue field, 
representing a new constellation." 

(400) 



It is difficult to prove when and where the flag adopted in 1777 
was first publicly displayed. New York claims one of the earliest 
uses of the flag for military purposes when it was used at Fort 
Stanwix. 

The tradition that Betsy Ross, as early as June 1776, made a 
Stars and Stripes flag from a pencil sketch supplied by Washington 
but changed the points of the stars from six to five, has become 
a classic. Historians doubt its accuracy and modern historical 
researchers are giving much thought to Francis Hopkinson of 
New Jersey as the possible designer and the Fillmore or Bennington 
flag as the first flag. 

The flag with the thirteen stripes and thirteen stars, authorized 
on June 14, 1777, continued to be used as the national emblem 
until Congress passed the following act which President Washington 
signed : 

"That from and after May 1, 1795, the flag of the 
United States be fifteen stripes, alternate red and 
white ; and that the union be fifteen stars, white in 
a blue field." 

This action was necessitated by the admission of the States 
of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. This was the flag which 
Francis Scott Key saw waving over Fort McHenry and was in- 
spired to write the "Star Spangled Banner." 

With the admission of more new states, it became apparent 
that the 1795 flag would have to be further modified. Therefore 
the final form of our flag was fixed by another act of Congress, 
signed by President Monroe on April 4, 1818, providing: 

"That from and after the fourth day of July next, 
the flag of the United States be thirteen horizontal 
stripes, alternate red and white; that the union 
have twenty stars, white in a blue field. 

That on the admission of every new state into the 
Union, one star be added to the union of the flag; 
and that such addition shall take effect on the 
Fourth of July next succeeding such admission." 

From 1818 to the present the flag has changed only in arrange- 
ment of the stars when a new state was admitted to the Union. 
On October 26, 1912, President Taft. by executive order, designated 
which star was to stand for which state. There were to be 
six rows of eight stars each and the stars were to symbolize the 
states in the order in which they ratified our national Constitution. 
In this arrangement the fifth star stands for Connecticut. 



(401) 



THE STATE FLAG 



The first proposal for legislation adopting a State Flag was 
introduced to the General Assembly by the following communica- 
tion from Governor O. Vincent Coffin, dated May 29, 1895: 

"I have the honor to transmit herewith a memorial and accom- 
panying documents from the Anna Warner Bailey Chapter of the 
Daughters of the American Revolution concerning the formal 
adoption of a State flag, and beg to bespeak your early attention 
to the patriotic purposes therein set forth." 

A Resolution appointing a special committee was adopted the 
same day, and on July 4, 1895 House Joint Resolution No. 480 was 
approved, which reads as follows: 

4 'Resolved by this Assembly: Section 1. That the flag which 
has up to the present time been generally accepted as the flag of 
this State ought to be officially and formally designated as such; 
and to this end that such designation be carefully and accurately 
prepared, the Adjutant-General is hereby instructed to prepare an 
official description of the State flag and report the same to the 
next session of the General Assembly." 

Adjutant General Charles P. Graham submitted a very interest- 
ing historical report of the use of a state flag, dated January 4, 
1897, a photostatic copy of which may be seen at the State Library. 

The General Assembly of 1897 provided the following to be the 
official description of the State Flag. 

'The following-described flag is the official flag of the state. 
The dimensions of the flag shall be five feet and six inches in length; 
four feet and four inches in width. The flag shall be of azure blue 
silk, charged with a shield of rococo design of argent white silk, 
having embroidered in the center three grape vines, supported 
and bearing fruit in natural colors. The bordure to the shield 
shall be embroidered in two colors, gold and silver. Below the 
shield shall be a white streamer, cleft at each end, bordered by 
gold and browns in fine lines, and upon the streamer shall be em- 
broidered in dark blue letters the motto 'Qui Transtulit SustineV; 
the whole design being the arms of the state." 

(Revised Statutes of 1930, Section 2238.)

THE STATE TREE 

(GEN. STATUTES 1947, SUPPL., SEC. 609i) 

'The White Oak, Quercus Alba, 
Shall Be The State Tree." 

THE CHARTER OAK 



"Only God can make a tree" 

In our busy lives, let us cherish the memory of the 

Charter Oak — true to its trust and unto the end, an oak. 

The famous old Charter Oak fell with a tremendous crash during 
the great storm at quarter before one o'clock on the morning of 
August 21, 1856. This famous monarch of the forest whose history 
is so intimately entwined in that of Connecticut, was supposed 
to be upwards of a thousand years of age. 

Before Governor Wyllys came to America, he sent his steward 
forward to prepare a place for his residence. As he was cutting 
away the trees upon the hillside of the beautiful "Wyllys place" a 
deputation of Indians came to him and requested that he would 
spare this old hollow oak. They declared that it had been the 
'guide of their ancestors for centuries. ,, 

On the 31st of October, 1687, Sir Edmund Andros, attended by 
members of his Council, and a bodyguard of sixty soldiers, entered 
Hartford to take by force the Charter granted "to the Colony by 
Charles the Second in 1662. By stratagem, however, the Charter 
was removed from the assembly room and concealed by Captain 
Joseph Wadsworth, a patriot of those times, in the hollow of the 
Wyllys Oak, afterwards knows as "The Charter Oak". 

In 1689, King James abdicated, and on the 9th of May that year 
Governor Treat and his associate officers resumed the government 
of Connecticut under the Charter, which had been preserved in 
the Old Oak. 

Curtis Guild in the Boston Traveler, Aug. 25, 1856

Connecticut State Seal 



THE STATE SEAL 

A complete history of the seal ae then used, was published in the Register and 

Manual of 1889. 



The first Colonial seal seems to have been suggested by General 
Fenwick of that time. This seal succeeded the British seal. It was 
slightly oval with a beaded border and smaller in size than the 
reproduction given here of the present seal. It was described as 
follows: 

"This seal represents a vineyard of fifteen vines, supported and 
bearing fruit." Above the vines, a hand issued from the clouds at 
the left of the observer, holding a label with the motto: "Sustinet 
qui transtalit." 

After the Colony received its charter the first General Assembly 
thereafter on October, 1662, directed its continuance as the State 
Seal. 

When the government of the Colony was taken over by Sir 
Edmund Andros, this seal was destroyed. On October 25, 1711, the 
General Assembly directed that a new seal be adopted. This seal 
was still oval in shape and considerably larger than the other. 
Instead of fifteen vines, there were but three, and there was a 
hand midway to the left of the observer and pointed to them. 

The immediate predecessor to the present seal was adopted in 
1784 and had four clusters of grapes on the upper two vines and 
five on the lower. The hand was omitted and the scroll and motto 
appeared beneath the clusters of grapes as in the present seal. 
This design was made in two seals, one for impressing documents 
and another for wax. 

One of these seals, or that used for impressing documents, be- 
came damaged. The other, or that used for impressing wax, was 
given to Yale University, while the former rests in the corner- 
stone of the State Library. 

The General Assembly of 1931, by Chapter 54, described the 
Great Seal, and an official drawing was made upon parchment, 
which drawing may be seen in the office of the Secretary.

THE ARMS OF THE STATE 

(Chapter 22 P. A. 1931) 



Section 1. The following-described arms shall be the official 
arms of the state: A shield of rococo design of white field, having 
in the center three grape vines, supported and bearing fruit. Below 
the shield shall be a white streamer, cleft at each end, bordered 
with two fine lines, and upon the streamer shall be in solid letters 
of medium bold Gothic the motto 

"QUI TRANSTULIT SUSTINET." 

Sec. 2. A drawing of said arms shall be made in conformity 
herewith, shall be filed in the office of the secretary of the state 
and shall be the official drawing of the arms of the state. 

Sec. 3. Said arms, whether in imprint or in facsimile form, shall 
be used under the direction of said secretary. 

Approved March 24, 1931. 

In conformity with the above act, an official drawing was made 
upon parchment which may be seen in the office of the Secretary.

Mountain Laurel — Kalmia Latifolia 
State Flower of Connecticut 



THE STATE FLOWER 



The mountain laurel, designated in 1907 as the State Flower of 
Connecticut, is perhaps the most beautiful of native American 
shrubs. Its fragrance and the massed richness of its white and 
pink blossoms, so vividly in contrast with the gloom of the virgin 
forest, at once attracted the notice of the early settlers and ex- 
plorers. John Smith mentioned it in his "General History" of 
L624. In 1750, the Swedish traveller, Peter Kalm, sent specimens 
of it to Linnaeus, and the famous botanist, finding that it belonged 
to a genus of evergreen hitherto unknown, gave it the name Kalmia 
latifolia. In the first name he honored his correspondent, and in 
the second, described the "wide-leaved" characteristic of the plant. 

Because it bore some resemblance to the European laurel, the 
settlers of New England already spoke of it as "laurel" or "mountain 
laurel." They also adopted the name "spoonwood", from the 
Indians, who had carved some of their eating utensils from the 
close-grained wood. A later generation dubbed it "Calico bush" 
from its resemblance to the printed cloth, and both of these descrip- 
tive names are still occasionally heard. 

In Connecticut, the mountain laurel blossoms in the latter part 
of June. It is characteristic of the plant that the flower clusters 
appear in greatest profusion every second or third years, so that 
the area enriched by it in one season, may have little to show in 
the next. But as with other evergreens, the foliage is prized as 
well as the flower, and the wide use of its mountain laurel for 
decorative purposes prompted Connecticut to protect its state 
flower by the passage of the "Laurel Law," a pioneer enactment 
in the field of conservation. 

The mountain laurel's immediate relatives in America are the 
azalea and the rhododendron. It is also cousin to the huckleberry 
and the blueberry, so abundant in our fields. 

For a complete description of the mountain laurel, and the 
measures that should be taken for its protection, see P. L. Buttrick, 
"Connecticut's State Flower, The Mountain Laurel." (Marsh 
Botanical Garden Publication, Number One) New Haven, 1924.

The American Robin — Turdus Migratorius 
State Bird of Connecticut 



THE STATE BIRD 

(Gen. Statutes, 1943 Suppl., Sec. 472g) 



The American Robin is a true thrush of the family Turdid&, 
and is found in summer throughout North America from Alaska 
to Virginia. The name Robin is applied to a number of familiar 
birds but in North America it is the Turdus migratorius. (Mean- 
ing a migratory thrush.) 

The real "Robin Red-breast" is a native of the Old World — 
a little bird formed much like our Bluebird with a dark brown 
back and reddish-orange throat and breast. Our so-called Robin 
is a large migratory thrush with a reddish-brown or tawny breast 
and a loud cheery song, but our forefathers named him Robin in 
remembrance of the beloved English bird, and despite the protests 
of naturalists the name is still used. 

Most people do not know that many Robins spend the entire 
winter in New England where they roost among the evergreens in 
swamps, feed on winter berries and come out into the fields occa- 
sionally when the snow has vanished during a thaw. This common 
habit is so little known that nearly every winter the newspapers 
publish articles predicting an early spring because the "Robbins 
have arrived early". 

The 1943 General Assembly adopted the American Robin as 
the official State Bird.

THE EXECUTIVE RESIDENCE 

990 Prospect Avenue, West Hartford 



The Executive Residence was built in 1909 by Dr. George C. F. 
Williams, who occupied it until 1933. The house is of Georgian 
Colonial design of waterstruck brick with limestone trim and slate 
roof. The original cost of the development of the property was 
$300,000. The purchase price to the state was $38,928. The pro- 
perty consists of approximately six acres of grounds and a 19-room 
residence and a garage with caretaker's quarters. It is located at 
990 Prospect Avenue near Elizabeth Park, famous nationally for 
its rose gardens. Situated on a hill the Executive Residence over- 
looks the city of Hartford and the central feature of the view is 
the State Capitol dome. 

The property was purchased by the state in August, 1943 after 
thirty-eight pieces of property throughout the state were inspected 
and visited by the 1943 Legislative Committee on the Executive 
Residence. 

The furniture and decorations are 18th Century originals and 
reproductions. On loan at the Residence are furniture, pewter, 
ceramics and paintings from the Mabel Brady Garvan Collection 
of the Yale University Art Gallery. The collection was a gift to 
Yale University by Francis P. Garvan, a native of East Hartford, 
Connecticut, and at one time Assistant United States Attorney 
General. He was one of the outstanding collectors of Americana 
in the nation. Items loaned to the state are, for the most part, 
of Connecticut origin and range from a tall case clock nearly 200 
years old, which was made by Asabel Cheney of East Hartford, 
to two pewter tankards made by Thomas Danforth II of Middle- 
town. 

Governor Raymond E. Baldwin and his family occupied the 
residence on September 14, 1945. The formal public opening cere- 
monies were held on October 18, 1945.

THE STATE CAPITOL 



In 1^71 the General Assembly appointed a commission to contract for and full}' 
complete a Capitol building in Hartford, and appropriated five hundred tl 
dollars, authorizing the city of Hartford to appropriate and issue bonds to the 
extent of one million dollars for the same purpose. 

The commission accepted the present site from the city of Hartford, and the 
plan of Richard Marshall Upjohn of New York, as a design for the building, which 
was built by James G. Batterson of Hartford. 

In 1^73 the plan was changed to a design for the present fireproof building, 
and five hundred thousand dollars additional appropriated by the State. A new 
commission was also appointed. In 1875 this was supplmented by a further and 
final appropriation of one million dollars and in that year Hartford became the 
Capital of the State. 

The entire cost, including heating and ventilating apparatus, and such statuary 
as was placed at the time of erection, was §2,532,524.43, and the cost of the furni- 
ture was about one hundred thousand dollars more. 

The General Assembly opened its first regular session in the building in January, 
1879, but it was not fully completed until some months later. 

The building at one time contained the State Library. Part of the space used 
for such purpose however has since been remodeled and now contains the present 
Senate Chamber. The Supreme Court also held sessions here and the hall which 
was used for this purpose is now part of the offices of the Personnel Department. 

The rooms used for offices and committees are in number about ninety-two and 
are numbered from one hundred onward, with the exception of the Senate Chamber, 
Representatives Hall and the room now used for the Judiciary- Committee, for- 
merly the Old Senate Chamber. The present Senate Chamber in addition to 
seating the Senate of thirty-six members, can comfortably seat approximately 
three hundred additional persons, while the House of Representatives, besides 
seating two hundred and seventy-two members, can seat with the aid of its galleries 
about six hundred more. 

The dimensions of the Capitol Building are as follows: 

Extreme length, two hundred ninety-five feet, eight inches; width of central 
part, one hundred eighty-nine feet four inches; of wings, one hundred eleven 
feet eight inches; height from ground to top of roof, ninety-two feet eight inches; 
to top of crowning finial, two hundred forty-five feet six inches. 

It is located upon a hill overlooking what was at one time the campus of Trinity 
College and it is within short distance of the Union Depot and but a few blocks 
from the new Post Office. Its grounds can be approached by drives, from Ford, 
Trinity and Washington Streets or by way of Capitol Avenue. 

Adjacent and making complete the picturesque setting of the State Capitol 
is Bushnell Park, this covers 41.27 acres. On die grounds of the Park near the 
east entrance is the statue of General Israel Putnam and statues of Horace Wells 
and a Memorial to Veterans of the Spanish War are located in that part of the 
Park beyond Trinity Street. Upon the terrace and to the north of the Capitol 
are two nine inch Dahlgren guns, which were used on the warship Hartford. Con- 
spicuous from all directions looking to the Capitol from the north side is the Corning 
Fountain with Indian Figures supporting it and a memorial arch spanning Trinity 
Street. Throughout the Park trees are planted of different varieties and from 
spring to late lall make its surrounding unsurpassed by any Capitol grounds. 

The exterior of the building is of marble and granite, the marble being (married 
from Fast Canaan, Connecticut, and the granite from Westerly, Rhode Island 

(417) 






At the north side above the entrance appears in bas-relief figures, Colonial 
Life as follows: "Indian Attack upon a Fort," "Wadsworth Hidin*, the Charter," 
while in the center, is the Coat of Arms; also "Putnam Leaving His Plow," "John 
Holmes Sailing Past a Dutch Fort." Above these in order follow statues of the 
colonial leaders, John Haynes, Joseph Wadsworth, John Winthrop, Jr., Theophilus 
Eaton, John Mason and Roger Ludlow. In bronze medallion, upon one side of 
the entrance is the bust outline of General Joseph R. Hawley, whilst upon the 
other side is the bust outline of late Senator Orville H. Piatt. 

On the east front upon pedestals similarly arranged, are also statues of colonial 
leaders, Thomas Hooker, Roger Sherman, Jonathan Trumbull and John 
Davenport. Medallion heads upon the east front of the Capitol depict those of 
the State distinguished in arts and letters as follows: Joel Barlow r , George Berkeley, 
Horace Bushnell, Noah Webster, John Trumbull, Jonathan Edwards and again 
in bas-relief: "Hooker's March to Hartford," "The Charter Oak," and "Davenport 
Preaching at New Haven." 

On the south side of the building there appear in niches the statues of Generals 
John Sedgwick and Alfred Terry, while on the west side of the building statues 
in the niches are, Oliver Wolcott, David Humphreys, David Wooster and Oliver 
Ellsworth. On the grounds just off the south-east driveway are located bronze 
statues of Col. Thomas Knowlton and Governor Richard D. Hubbard, while 
at the entrance of this driveway is the "Petersburgh Express," a mortar relic 
of the Civil War. 

Within the building at the w r est end protected in glass cases are the various 
flags used by regiments in the Civil, Spanish and World Wars which were carried 
by military or naval divisions of Connecticut engaged therein. There are also 
bronze statues of Nathan Hale and William A. Buckingham, model of the statue 
formerly on the Capitol dome and the figure head which once adorned the prow 
of the Flagship Hartford. About the first floor are also relics of the Civil War, 
being a portion of a tree, taken from the battlefield of Chickamauga and a wheel 
of a cannon used by the 1st Conn. Lt. Bt. & Vols., in various battles in the South. 
In the south lobby is a revolving cannon taken from the Spanish warship Viscaya 
and a camp bedstead used by Marquis de Lafayette. 

The crowning feature of the Capitol was the winged bronze figure representing 
the Genius of Connecticut, by Randolph Rogers, Rome, 1877 and cast by Ferd 
v Miller & Sohne, Munchen, 1878. It measured seventeen feet to the tip of its 
wings, weighed six thousand six hundred pounds, and cost $14,000. The plaster 
cast in the north corridor of the Capitol is the same as the one from which the 
bronze was cast. In 1938 the Genius was removed and replaced by a temporary 
stone finial. 

The twelve marble statues standing upon the twelve angles of the dome at 
the base of the cone represent Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Music, Science 
and Force. There are two of each. The models from w T hich these statues were 
cut were modeled by J. Q. A. Ward of New York and are now standing on the 
copings of the two main stairways leading to the balcony of the House of Rep- 
resentatives. The statues are twice the size of the models. 

On the first floor are the offices of the Comptroller, Treasurer and Bureau of 
School Fund, State Auditors, and the Superintendent of the Capitol. 

On the second floor are the offices of the Governor, the Secretary of the State, 
Legislative Commissioner, the Hall of the House and rooms generally used for

CONNECTICUT TOWNS IN THE ORDER 

OF THEIR ESTABLISHMENTS; WITH 

THE ORIGIN OF THEIR NAMES 

Until 1700 almost the only official action of the colonial govern- 
ment (General Court) in regard to town organization, was to 
authorize the town name, usually chosen by its leading man, from 
his home in England. In October, 1700, we find implied or quasi 
incorporation, such as exists to this day in the records. "This 
assembly doth grant to the inhabitants of the town of Lebanon 
all such immunities, privileges and powers, as generally other 
townes within this Colonie have and doe enjoy." The authoritative 
legal definition of a town in England, contemporary with the earliest 
Connecticut settlements is given in the first edition of Coke's 
Commentaries upon Littleton, published 1628: "It can not be a 
town in law, unless it hath, or in past time hath had, a church, 
and celebration of Divine services, sacraments and burials." The 
churches, which moved bodily, with their pastors, from Massa- 
chusetts to Connecticut, proceeded to exercise the secular powers 
which we regard as those of the town, but the English township 
is known by its ecclesiastical name of parish. Several of our towns 
were first set off as parishes from great town-tracts; yet the town 
in Connecticut colony essentially separated church and state in 
government, in that it never restricted political suffrage to church 
members. As to dates, the official colonial records are followed, 
as soon as they begin, 1636. 

THE COLONY

ton River, on a tract previously bought of the original Indian pro- 
prietors. Before the summer of 1635, the settlers had bought Great 
Meadow, north of the Farmington, and placed cattle and servants on 
their lands. They sold out, 1637 and 1638, to Dorchester, Mass.,

POPULATION OF TOWNS, 1756 TO 1940 

CONNECTICUT FROM 1756 TO 1940 



429 



The census of 1774 embraces as a part of Litchfield County "Westmoreland, 1,922", pre- 
sumably the Pennsylvania tract at that time claimed by Connecticut. "Fair Haven, 1,317," 
is included in the figures for 1850. The creation of new towns explains many apparent losses 
in population of the older ones. See section "Towns, Cities and Boroughs", in this volume.
