The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts has long enjoyed a strong affiliation with Wethersfield. Indeed, Mr. Stillman was a significant benefactor of Thomas More College when he was alive. Following his death, with the continued support of the Foundation in the mid-1990’s, the Stillman dormitory was built on the New Hampshire campus and dedicated to the memory of Chauncey Devereux Stillman in gratitude for his generosity to the college.
Today, Wethersfield continues its affiliation with Thomas More College. Starting in 2015, Wethersfield awards 3 Fellowship positions to recent Thomas More alumnae. The Fellows are responsible for assisting in curatorial work, updating and researching the collection inventory, and conducting tours of the estate to visitors. Wethersfield offers these Fellowships on an annual basis and the Fellows are residents on the Estate. In fact, one of the recent Fellows has become our Assistant Curator here at Wethersfield.
Through these Fellowships and Workshops in affiliation with Thomas More College,
Wethersfield supports the vision of Mr. Stillman that the estate be enjoyed and shared with a focus on education, fine arts and the liberal arts amongst other goals.
