John Williams Haley, Sr. (1897 - 1963) was the former vice president of the Narragansett Brewing Company and the Rhode Island historian for over 25 years. He was best known for his weekly radio program, 'The Rhode Island Historian', which ran from 1927 until about 1953. The Providence Institute for Savings ('The Old Stone Bank') published several hundred of his radio scripts in pamphlet form and many were reprinted later in the four-volume Old Stone Bank History of Rhode Island.
