James T. Powers
James T. Powers first developed a life-long love of history while growing up in the old industrial town of Wallingford, Connecticut where he came to realize that the past was all around us and that by connecting to it we could come to better understand who we are. Following graduation from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, James committed himself to a career of sharing that love through the teaching of history.
Over the years, his interests and expertise have expanded to include local archaeology and the study of New England Colonial architecture both which he teaches at Guilford High School in Guilford, Connecticut. Besides a BA, James has also received two Masters Degrees from Wesleyan University. His first book, Saving the Farm; A Journey through Time, Place, and Redemption is a product of his passion for the past.
