My name is Barry Arthur Cotton and I am the 7th great-grandson of John Cotton, the Puritan Patriarch of New-England. John Cotton was a Founding Father to America’s Founding Fathers and established America’s first public school, the Boston Latin School, and its first university, Harvard University. I am President Emeritus of the Winthrop Society and have authored articles for the Winthrop Journal and the Mayflower Quarterly.

Currently, I am working on a biography of John Cotton titled JOHN COTTON: An Intimate Investigation of His Life and Times, which recently was awarded First Place in the 2017 WRITERS’ LEAGUE OF TEXAS MANUSCRIPT CONTEST for nonfiction, and am also working on a book titled, TALES OF TWO BOSTONS: How immigrants from 17th century Boston, England helped establish the Massachusetts Bay Company and then shaped Colonial America.
