Welcome to the Friends of Franklin website

For three decades, the Friends of Franklin has encouraged the study and appreciation (and enjoyment) of Benjamin Franklin. We consider 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.

This website is happily offered to anyone with an interest in our mutual friend.

  • On the right of your screen is a News Feed of recent items relating to Benjamin Franklin.
  • Below that, the ability to Search this website.
  • The Recent Entries page contains blog entries, the most recent first.
  • Under the Topics by Category menu, each page offers a compressed view of blog entries in that category. If you click the title of an entry, the full entry will display, with formatting and hyperlinks.

We invite your exploration, and look forward to your questions, comments and suggestions.
