Bennett, Phyllis Wheeler - ,new Hampshire,  
1941 - 2015 Phyllis Wheeler Bennett, 74, of Durham, New Hampshire died on July 21, 2015. Born February 21, 1941 in New York, New York, Phyllis was the daughter of Bertram and Kathryn Wheeler. Phyllis graduated from Douglass College, now part of Rutgers University, in 1962. She began her active career when she won an internship with the United Nations. She did regular broadcasts, in Spanish, for the Voice of America. After graduation she worked in the Washington, DC office of Congressman Jim Wright of Texas. In 1973, she and her former husband, Stephen Alden Bennett, moved to New Hampshire to start a weekly newspaper devoted to "local news and opinions." Publick Occurrences was named after the first newspaper published in the American colonies, shut down by King James after one issue. Six weeks after going to press, Publick Occurrences broke the news that Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis was secretly planning, with the aid of then Governor Meldrim Thompson, to build the world's largest oil refinery on Durham Point. As publisher, Phyllis oversaw the editorial content of hundreds of pages of facts gathered by University of New Hampshire faculty and members of Save our Shores, led by local resident Nancy Sandberg. The paper's reporting brought truth to the events and was instrumental in preserving the NH seacoast. Its coverage of the oil refinery opposition and debate, "Battle for Durham," was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and it was named the most enterprising newspaper in New England by the Boston Globe. The oil refinery proposal was ultimately defeated by local vote made possible by the legislative works of NH Rep. Dudley Dudley. A granite bench recognizing the actions of these three women can be visited at Wagon Hill Farm in Durham, NH. In 1974, Phyllis joined Steve Taylor at the newly formed New Hampshire chapter of the Humanities Council and in 1979 she joined the University of New Hampshire, where she lead the office of University Relations for eight presidents over the course of 23 years. Phyllis was a quiet power in state politics. She worked as a trusted advisor, in both formal and informal capacities, on countless political campaigns, including as Press Secretary for US Rep. Mo Udall's 1973 Presidential campaign. Members of Phyllis' family include her husband and partner of 40 years, Ray Belles, her brother Richard Wheeler and his wife, Patty, of Ketchum, ID; her daughter, Meredith Bennett, her husband, Robert LaForty, and grandsons Ryan and Colin, of Ridgewood, NJ; and her son, Patrick Bennett, his wife, Kathy, and grandsons Alden and Hartley, of Charlotte, NC. Memorial Contributions are welcome in support of Families First. They may be sent to Families First, 100 Corporate Drive - Suite 12, Portsmouth, NH, 03801. A celebration of Phyllis' life will be held in the fall. We hope many of you will join us to share memories of a woman who made the world a better place with her good humor, wisdom, talent, conviction, generosity, and grace.
