Connecticut Chapter (as told by Thomas Johnson)

P.O. BOX 9145

In 1990, the Washington, Maryland, Virginia Chapter President Gwendolyn Robertson talked to me about the opportunity of bringing a Wilson alumni chapter to connecticut, making it the fifth alumni chapter for Wilson. After thinking about it for a year (in 1991) I decided to take the advantage of the valuable resources that I had at the time.

I decided to notified the chapters of my decision. I did not have any members at the time; the only one I new in Connecticut was Billy Pettigrew. Slowly the alumni in the New Haven, Connecticut area began calling me. With that, the Connecticut Chapter was born.
Unfortunately, the Connecticut Chapter was dissolved in August 2012.  All Alumni are encouraged to join the Florence Chapter as at-large members to continue receiving information on upcoming events.
