About the Program:
Oliver Ellsworth was a farmer’s son from Windsor, Connecticut, who went on to a distinguished career at the bar in the early days of the United States. He made foundational contributions to the Constitution and the federal judiciary, and served as the nation’s third Chief Justice. He deserves to be better known in his home state. To bring this about, Oliver himself – or maybe that’s Brian O’Donnell in period-appropriate garb – will tell us about his life and times.
