Making News On Martha's Vineyard

The Vineyard Gazette has always been a literary icon of this wonderful Island, garnering praise from the journalism community year after year for its fine editorial writing and exceptional photography. The Gazette continues to adhere to a model championed by its late editor, Henry Beetle Hough, as he fought to preserve what has been a special way of life for so many years.

I was pleased to participate in assisting a buyer of mine in the purchase of the old Henry Beetle Hough house in Edgartown some years ago. The house has changed quite a bit over the years since Mr. Hough’s death, but it’s still a beautiful property and his former wife still owns the house behind it.

A new book by Phyllis Meras, a frequent contributor to the Vineyard Gazette, chronicling the life of Henry Beetle Hough might be of interest to you if you are a student of Martha’s Vineyard history. The book is titled Making news on Martha's Vineyard.
