Where do the terms “flatlander” and “woodchuck” come from? - VPR

There is learned speculation that the term “woodchuck” for a native Vermonter was coined, unintentionally, by none other than Gov. and Sen. George Aiken.

"Al is retired now and lives in Middlesex, but for more than 30 years, he provided legal counsel to the state Legislature, and he went to Harvard. Because of that, he admits he’s probably only a partial woodchuck: “I've been polluted from my pure woodchuck-ness.”"
