    On Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m., Marcia Schmidt Blaine will explore why a woman would take on the challenge of running the potentially most disruptive place in town.

    Blaine is a historian of New Hampshire and New England history and the chair of the Department of History and Philosophy at Plymouth State University.
