vering some seventy-five acres, lying between Portland Street and Third (formerly Court) Street and the Broad Canal came into the possession of this company. On these lands a number of manufacturing structures and workshops, some of notable character, have been erected; but after thirty-five years of effort, and despite the strong and steady growth of the old districts of the city during that period, quite one third of the available holdings of this company still remain to be built upon. In 1874, a third charter was granted by the legislature to other citizens desirous of solving the utilitarian problems in this section. The Cambridge Improvement Company was thus formed, and became possessed of between fifty and sixty acres of lowlands, mostly flats, between Third Street and the river. The interposition of Broad Canal between these lands and Main Street, always a seemingly insurmountable obstacle to the use of these lands, effectually closed them from advantageous connection with B
ties, the present game of baseball was first played at Harvard, and the Cambridge city government granted a petition for the use of the Common near the Washington Elm as a practice ground for the college students. This was used until the spring of 1864, after which the Delta was used for baseball games. In the next decade, beginning 1870, several more college gymnasiums were built, including the Hemenway Gymnasium at Harvard University. The Harvard Athletic Association was established in 1874, and the Rugby football game, which seems to have such a hold upon the American public, was introduced at Harvard at about this time. With the completion of the Hemenway Gymnasium, and its equipment with a new system of apparatus, a new era was introduced in gymnasium construction and in gymnasium methods. Some of the features which made the Hemenway Gymnasium unique at the time of its opening may be briefly stated: It was the largest gymnasium in point of floor-room, air space, and the n
st of past members contains many a name of state and even national reputation. This service has been admirably supplemented and strengthened by the gentlemen who have served as superintendents of schools since 1868: Edwin B. Hale, from 1868 until 1874, and Francis Cogswell, from 1874 to the present time. Whether guiding or executing progressive educational policies, Mr. Cogswell has shown rare wisdom and tact, and throughout his prolonged experience has enjoyed the uninterrupted confidence of 1874 to the present time. Whether guiding or executing progressive educational policies, Mr. Cogswell has shown rare wisdom and tact, and throughout his prolonged experience has enjoyed the uninterrupted confidence of his committee, the schools, and the public. It is usually understood that the first superintendent of schools in Massachusetts was appointed in Springfield in 1840. Cambridge records show, however, that the town warrant of March 17, 1836, contained an article with reference to employing a superintendent of schools, that the school committee, April 15, 1836, voted to employ one of their number in that capacity, that Josiah Hayward was accordingly elected superintendent, April 25, 1836, and t
e of the Athenaeum building. Later Mr. Dana, by a codicil to his will, left fifteen thousand dollars for the increase and support of the library; but the city lost this bequest through legal objections to the form in which it was expressed. In 1874 the library, for the use of which a fee of one dollar a year had been charged, was made free to the public; and in 1879 the name was changed to the Cambridge Public Library. In 1875 the library contained seven thousand volumes; in 1885 it had ionations are given in the annual reports of the trustees. This imperfect sketch of the history and work of the library must not close without a brief tribute to the memory of Miss Almira L. Hayward, who was its librarian for twenty years (from 1874 to 1894); and for this I cannot do better than to quote a few sentences from the minute entered by the trustees on their records, to express their grateful appreciation of her services: She was in many respects a remarkable woman. Her conscientio
he belief and usage of the English Church. Rev. East Apthorp, a Fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge, England, was proposed, and was appointed in 1759. In 1761 Christ Church was opened for service. In the time of the Revolution service in the church was interrupted, and the house was used for military purposes, though an occasional service was held. In 1790 the house was restored, and it has since been enlarged and adorned. The longest ministry was that of Rev. Nicholas Hoppin, from 1839 to 1874. He stands worthily in this long pastorate with his friends, Dr. Albro and Dr. Newell. The parish of St. Peter's Church was organized in 1842. Its first house of worship was on Prospect Street. In 1867 the new church on Massachusetts Avenue was opened. St. James's Parish, in North Cambridge, was organized in 1866. A mission of the Protestant Episcopal Church had been sustained in that part of the city for eighteen months, under the charge of the Rev. Andrew Croswell. He was followed by

In 1874 they removed to Cambridgeport and built the ext interrupted by fire, once in 1855 and again in 1874. In the latter year Mr. Seaverns decided to ses of this industry have been uninterrupted. In 1874 a joint stock company was formed, under the name site of the present Prospect House Block. In 1874 he built the factory, 443 Massachusetts Avenue,875, but had been registered and copyrighted in 1874. In 1883 the firm adopted the policy of manufa W. W. Kimball retired; Hiland Lockwood died in 1874, and George W. Squire withdrew in 1876; Fred F was made for a time in both localities, but in 1874 the old works were permanently given up.
