One of his ancestors, Samuel Polley, who settled in Medford in 1708, married Elizabeth Hall, granddaughter of John Hall, who settled in Medford in 1675.

Mr. Hooper is also descended from the early settlers of Marblehead, his great-grandfather being the famous ‘King’ Hooper of that town.

Miss Helen T. Wild, whose portrait also appears in this number, is the efficient secretary of Sarah Bradlee Fulton Chapter, D. A.R., as well as an active worker in the Historical Society. Her article on Medford in the War of the Revolution is of pleasing interest.

the opening meeting of the season, October 17, was a social occasion. The rooms were cheerful from blazing wood fires, and brilliant from electric lights, and the same adjectives might be applied, with due discrimination, to the members, who gathered in a goodly number.

Rev. Edward A. Rand, of Watertown, who was present as a guest, made one of his charming addresses, and refreshments were served during the evening at the pleasure of the individual.

Mrs. Mary B. Loomis, the newly elected regent of Sarah Bradlee Fulton Chapter, D. A.R., is a member of the Historical Society, and has contributed much to the social pleasure of the Saturday evening chats. We trust that her success with the gavel may equal her skill with the chafing-dish.
