The Society's magazine.
With the current number, the twelfth volume of the Register is completed.
The aim of the Publication Committee
has been to present a magazine distinctively local; to gather from authentic sources items of Medford
history that might otherwise be lost; and to preserve them in a worthy and attractive form.
That a good degree of success has been attained is evident.
The first four volumes bear the imprint of Rockwell
, [p. 96] Boston
; the others show the excellent and careful work of our townsman, J. C. Miller, Jr.
The preparation of the illustrations has been mainly the work of Mr. Eddy
; though thanks for the use of cuts are due in a few cases to others.
During ten years, Messrs. C. H. Loomis
, Walter H. Cushing
, Will C. Eddy
and Miss Helen T. Wild
were successively editors.
By their able work, a reputable position among kindred publications has been reached.
Mr. David H. Brown
succeeded Miss Wild, and the issue of January, 1908, was edited by him. After his death Mr. Moses W. Mann
was chosen as his successor.
With the work of nearly two years before our patrons, the present incumbent bespeaks co-operation in the line of increased circulation and contribution of short articles relative to Medford
in recent years, now rapidly growing remote.
We desire that the thirteenth
volume may in no wise be unlucky
, but prove of worth for reference and a welcome visitor to home and library.
