The Dorset Historical Society’s next Lunchtime Lecture will feature Gary Shattuck, who will make a presentation on opiates and their backstory in the Green Mountain State from the 18th century into the early 20th. A past member of the Vermont State Police, Shattuck is also a former Assistant Attorney General of Vermont, a former Assistant US Attorney with the Justice Department, and the author of two books on Vermont history,  ‘Artful and Designing Men: The Trials of Job Shattuck and the Regulation of 1786-1787’ and ‘Insurrection, Corruption and Murder in Early Vermont: Life on the Wild Northern Frontier.’ The event is free and open to the public; it starts at 12 noon on Thursday, April 21, at the DHS Bley House Museum on Route 30 at the corner of Kent Hill Road in Dorset Village.
