Hon. Eleazar Boynton.

At the regular meeting of the society held November 18, 1901, the following resolutions were offered on the death of the late Hon. Eleazar Boynton, a life member of the society:—

The Medford Historical Society desires to put on record the loss sustained by them in the death of Hon. Eleazar Boynton. His was one of the characters that comes so near to a perfect standard that it is but pleasure to express it, and thankfulness, too, that such persons really exist among us. Possessing a well trained mind and warm heart, combined with a vigorous body, he was able to be a true helper when and where it was needed. The home, the school, the church, the city, each bore witness to his loving service, and a more patriotic citizen would be hard to find, so that in each place there is a void that none can fill and a grief is ours that time and eternal grace only can assuage.

Resolved, That the church, in the death of Hon. Eleazar Boynton, has lost an earnest, consistent worker, the business world a merchant of integrity, the community a citizen of broad and liberal views, who has always taken a keen interest in the public welfare, and

Resolved, That the Medford Historical Society has lost one of its valued life members, who has recognized from its inception the value of the work the society is doing; and

Resolved, That the society tenders its sympathy to his family, that these resolutions be spread upon the records of the society and published in the Medford papers.
