William Adams Alden, the 19th century vampire of Dover

To the Editor,
I was very excited to read in this week’s Deerfield Valley News that the new owner of the Kitzhof Inn is hosting Joseph Citro on the 21st. It has been quite a few years since I first wrote this letter to the Deerfield Valley News. With Mr. Citro’s visit and the approach of Halloween, I thought it might be interesting to reflect again on Dover’s real-life, honest-to-goodness vampire, William Adams Alden.
