Recently Marjorie Adams visited the hometown of her great-grandfather, Daniel Lucius ‘Doc’ Adams. Doc Adams was born in Mont Vernon, New Hampshire on November 1, 1814 to Daniel Adams, MD and Nancy Mulliken Adams. He and his family lived there until 1846 when they moved to Keene, New Hampshire.
While in Mont Vernon, Marjorie delivered a Doc Adams presentation to the Milford Rotary and Mont Vernon Historical Society. The presentation detailed Doc’s life and contributions to the birth of our National Pastime.
Here are a few articles from that recent visit:
- “Celebrating Doc Adams: ‘A father of base ball’?”, in the The Cabinet Press (8/17/17)
- “Mont Vernon celebrates its baseball pioneer”, in the The Telegraph (8/18/17)
- “The push to honor a baseball pioneer from New Hampshire”, in the Concord Monitor (8/19/17)
Marjorie will be returning to Mont Vernon on September 23 for the Inaugural Doc Adams Invitational. For more information, Inaugural Doc Adams Invitational Flyer.
