On November 12, 2017, in honor of Veteran’s Day, Doug Culver will deliver an educational, interactive talk on the history of World War II at the Canton Town Office Meeting Room. Culver will incorporate pieces from his extensive personal collection of original WWII artifacts into his talk to vividly tell the story of the ordinary men who fought and served, and of their extraordinary achievements. The program will include hands-on demonstrations of the uniforms, equipment, and weapons (all of which have been rendered inert and made safe for public viewing) used during WWII.
Culver worked as a patrolman and criminal investigator for 34 years, but studying and teaching about WWII have been his lifelong passions. He has been researching the history of WWII since he was a teenager and has presented WWII programs for the past 30 years for high school history students, veterans’ groups, museums, historical societies, and other organizations. He has offered guidance for theater groups on accurate costuming for the time period and consulted with countless individuals on the identification of materials in family collections. Culver served on the Board of Directors at the Fort Devens Museum and was the volunteer collections/archives manager at the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire before moving to Canton. Culver possesses a current Federal Firearms License.
