Abstract
Before there was Roger Williams, before there was Willaim Coddington, there was William Blackstone. Regarded as an eccentric religious recluse, Blackstone arrived in Rhode Island in 1635, after living most of the 10 previous years in Boston. John Williams Haley takes a closer look at the character of this first settler.
