Vermont Claims to Fame

Tuesday, December 15 from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm via Zoom

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes author and historian Richard B. Smith to talk about Vermont claims to fame. The talk will take place on Tuesday, December 15 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm via Zoom. Although Vermont has the second smallest population in the US and historically has had a small population, the state has produced some amazing claims to fame in the US including being first, last, longest, shortest, only and most. This slide presentation will highlight many of these claims. Some claims will be surprising, some startling, some monumental in US history and some current and lesser known. Although some slides and topics will be from his recent book, Vermont Firsts and Other Claims to Fame, Dick Smith will include many slides and subjects not in his book and will discuss why some claims did not make the list. The Northshire and Southshire are well represented with something for everyone who loves Vermont. We are offering this lecture free to the community as a way of saying thank you for the support in a very challenging year. We are, however, suggesting a voluntary donation, which can be made when you register. Because we love our little Vermont community, the total of all donations received for this talk will be 50% shared with The Community Food Cupboard to help those in need. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at
