The providence for this claim is on Page 3 of the Monday, September 13th 1976 issue of The Portsmouth Herald which is now among the AuxBeacon archives.
On the 9th of May 2018, Alger Conger was arrested after Gilford police received a tip that Conger was having contact with children through his involvement of the Missions Committee of the First United Methodist Church in Gilford. The tip came after Conger appeared in a photo last month in The Laconia Daily Sun, posing with a group of young people who were sorting items that the church was preparing to donate.
On the 20th of November 2007, former Civil Air Patrol New Hampshire Wing Lt Col Alger Conger was released from prison after serving 46 months.
