Proceedings of the 275th Anniversary of the settlement of Medford.
Through the courtesy of the Executive Committee of the 275th Anniversary, the register has received a copy of the attractive book under the above title.
The book contains 261 pages, 87 of which are devoted to a brief history of Medford
by Mr. John H. Hooper
The historian presents a great deal of new material which his long study of land titles and other county and town records has brought to light.
's problem was not ‘what shall I put in’ to the few pages at his disposal, but rather ‘what shall I leave out?’
We are anxiously waiting for instalments of this leftover matter, while we are delighted with and instructed by what he has already given us. The Committee is to be congratulated for having secured for the book the services of the man who knows more about Medford
history than any other person living.
The report of the anniversary with stenographic reports of all addresses and poems, with full reports of committee work, is admirably compiled.
The illustrations are artistic and the portraits wonderfully good likenesses.
Either the history, the reports of proceedings or the illustrations, alone would be well worth the price of the book to one who loves the fair old town of Medford
