John Winthrop - Selected Archive Items

Back Back to John Winthrop Activities

[1363] Anonymous, John Winthrop (17th cent.),
courtesy of American Antiquarian Society.
John Winthrop was the first governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony. His somber-colored clothing marks him as a Puritan, while his ornate neck ruff indicates his wealth and social status.

[6751] Richard S. Greenough, Statue of John Winthrop (1876),
courtesy of Architect of the Capitol.
This statue was given, along with one of Samuel Adams, by the state of Massachusetts in 1876 to the National Statuary Hall Collection in the United States Capitol. The choice of Winthrop indicates his status both as a prominent American and as an allegorical representative of the nation's ideals.

[6942] Photo of a Statue of Roger Williams, Providence, Rhode Island (2002),

A Puritan whose unorthodox views alienated him from both the Massachusetts Bay and the Plymouth colonies, Roger Williams has been reclaimed by some contemporary scholars as a democratic and pluralist hero.
