New Hampshire history, notably the four-volume The Granite State: A History of New
Hampshire
. Squires served as a delegate to the 1952, 1954 and 1964 Republican
National Conventions.


About the James Duane Squires Papers

The James Duane Squires Papers consist of correspondence and materials dealing with
Squires’s participation in the 1952, 1956 and 1964 Republican National Conventions
as a delegate for the State of New Hampshire. Additional material relating to the
Republican platform is included in the 1964 Convention material, since Squires was
