Limited Edition and, as they say, “NOT SOLD IN STORES!”

Both of these books were written by Earl J. Dias, who is a Fairhaven resident. Professor Dias was chairman of the English Department at Southeastern Massachusetts University (now UMass Dartmouth). He also taught at Fairhaven High School. The research for both of these volumes was based on the Millicent Library collection of letters from Twain to Rogers and his family and also on interviews with members of the Rogers family as well as use of other primary and secondary sources. Professor Dias also wrote many plays for young people, reviews of books, drama, and music for the New Bedford Standard Times and one of the few books on Rogers — Henry Huttleston Rogers: Portrait of a Capitalist (now generally unavailable). All of these books were published by the Millicent Library and are out of print. We have a few copies left and are making them available through our website and at the library itself.
