About Florence Cole Heckman
Florence (Cole) Heckman (9 May 1891 Dover NH - 20 Apr. 1983 Gulfport FL) 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.
