Who are your Honorary Members?
The Live Free or Die Alliance periodically recognizes individuals who have reached the pinnacle of citizenship through service to their New Hampshire neighbors and engagement with their communities and fellow citizens both within the state and beyond. These are our Honorary Members.
The Honorable William Treat (1918-2010)
Local judge, community banker and international diplomat Judge William Wardwell Treat of Stratham was renowned equally for his promotion of international human rights as for his reformation of probate law and court systems throughout New Hampshire and eventually the nation.
The Honorable Walter Peterson (1922-2011)
Peterborough Budget Committee member, Navy veteran, educator and two-term governor of New Hampshire, Walter Rutherford Peterson, Jr., for more than a half-century served Granite Staters as a fiscal hawk and champion of education as a key to local students’ success.
Civil-rights worker, public servant, educator and retired New Hampshire Charitable Foundation President and CEO Lew Feldstein was a lifelong advocate for civic engagement. For nearly a quarter century, he helped to redefine philanthropy in northern New England, providing the financial springboard for countless charitable nonprofits to flourish across the state.
