Full Description

A six-part television series documenting the lives and contributions of the state's six living former governors. As the state prepares to enter its third century, the six men who served as governor of Vermont between 1959 and 1985 will offer their perspectives on a period of sweeping change in the state. Robert Stafford, who served from 1959 to 1961; F. Ray Keyser Jr. (1961-63); Philip Hoff (1963-69); Deane C. Davis (1969-73); Thomas P. Salmon (973-77); and Richard Snelling (1977-85) presided as Vermont saw its first state sales tax passed after a bitter legislative battle, the election of the first Democratic governor ever (Hoff), reapportionment of the Legislature, challenges to the state's rural character and the enactment of landmark legislation on the environment, education, and welfare reform. Christopher Graff, bureau chief of the associated Press in Vermont will host the series, which will begin production this summer. Graff will go to each former governor's home for the interviews that are the core of the series, allowing each the opportunity for personal reflection. Each program will include a brief history of the governor's term and a "scrapbook" of historic footage.
