About Florence Cole Heckman
Florence Cole [Heckman] of Dover, N.H. graduated from the New Hampshire College of
Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts in 1912. In 1909, while still a freshman, she
wrote the music to “On to Victory” with words by Professor Richard Whoriskey, the
most popular marching and football rally song at the university ever since. She
taught high school English for many years, but during the Depression she and her
parents bought a small farm in South Effingham where she wrote and produced many
plays. It was here that she learned of Indian Stream in the north of the state near
Pittsburg, which formed itself into a small republic in 1832 to protect itself
against the British and French to the north of the border.
