David M. Powers
AboutDavid Powers is a native of Springfield, MA, and has long been interested in its earliest days, particularly the part the William Pynchon played in shaping its life. He has traced the history from a map of the early days of Pynchon's settlement in a book by Springfield historian Harry Andrew Wright, to a paper for C. Conrad Wright's American Church History class at Harvard Divinity School. Through extensive research since retirement in both New England and Old, Powers has explored as much of the story as he could and is pleased to share the results of that journey with you.
