Where Are Vermont's 'Aging Hippies'? One's On The State Supreme Court

Angela Evancie
Justice Marilyn Skoglund is currently the longest-serving member of Vermont's high court. She moved here in 1973, and her first residence in the state was an uninsulated shepherd's cottage on a 500-acre dairy farm.

“Where are all the aging hippies that moved to Vermont during the '60s and '70s, and what are they doing now?”

That's the question Judy Pond of Norwich asked Brave Little State this month.

To answer Judy's question, Brave Little State collected anecdotes from VPR's audience, and spoke with Montpelier artist Lois Eby and Rutland farmer Greg Cox.

The show also profiled Marilyn Skoglund, who has served as an associate justice on the Vermont Supreme Court since 1997.
