Remembering Dick Hamilton

Dick Hamilton, who dedicated his life to growing tourism in the White Mountains and became a pioneer in the industry, is being remembered for the role he played in putting the region and the state on the map, as well as for being a friend to many. Hamilton, of Littleton, died early Wednesday morning at 86. For 35 years, before retiring in 2005, he was the president of the White Mountains Attractions Association, which promotes the region’s destinations and encourages the attractions and the hundreds of tourism-related businesses that are its members to collaborate for the benefit of all.
