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.
