The Proceedings of the Two Hundred and Seventyfifth Anniversary of the Settlement of Medford were issued by the Publishing Committee in 1906.
The addresses, poems and various events of the four days celebration are fully recorded and form a very interesting and valuable volume of nearly three hundred pages.
This book is prefaced by a very complete though necessarily brief history of Medford from the day of its settlement to the time of the anniversary (June 15, 1905). The author, John H. Hooper, has given a concise and clear account of Medford's beginning, its people, its industries, its roads, bridges and buildings, its churches, schools, institutions and societies in ninety pages, a labor of love for his native town.
The Medford Publishing Company also issued during the time of the celebration a souvenir volume called Medford, Past and Present, which is a credit to the writers and an honor to the city.
