Kevin Murphy

Craft Research Fund—Project Grant


My research focuses on Scott Nearing (1883-93) and Helen K. Nearing (1904-1995) and the back-to-the-land movement of the 1960s and ‘70s. I relate the approximately twenty buildings the couple constructed from local stone, in Vermont and Maine to their leftist political agenda, and craft tradition.
