Telling the story of 200 years  of White Mountain History
                             Outlook Magazine
             Articles Provided Courtesy of Homer May



Outlook was a glossy magazine published quarterly from 1974 to 1998 for the White Mountain Region Association.  The magazine was planned and designed by Homer May, President of Region Publications, Haverhill, NH.  Each issue contained well-written articles about New Hampshire’s White Mountains.  Articles about the region’s businesses and industries were written by authors involved in the company or industry; articles about local history were written by town historians; and other articles were written by people with first hand knowledge of what they were writing about.  The magazine was supported by it’s advertisers-there were no paid subscriptions.  It was distributed, at no cost, to 5,000 North Country business leaders, government officials, and school teachers.


With the permission and cooperation of Homer May, who still lives in Haverhill, we are able to share his work and the magazine’s articles, with visitors to this website.
