The Friends of Franklin was formed in 1983 as a 501.c(3) corporation to support the study and appreciation of Benjamin Franklin. We considered ourselves an extension of the wide circle of friends that Mr. Franklin (“Doctor Franklin” to his friends) enjoyed throughout his long life in the 18th Century. For three decades, we published a quarterly newsletter to our paid membership, and sponsored exhibits, trips and publications about Dr. Franklin. In 2013 we published our last Gazette and started dissolving the corporation.
This website will now be a Franklin-related blog by Martin Mangold, and is happily offered to anyone with an interest in our mutual friend.
Please check back any time, or contact me (below) to receive email notifications of new postings (we hope to automate that sign-up soon).
