D. Elliot was elected president; since then we have had John F. Aver for four years and the present incumbent, Frank M. Hawes, for two years. Step by step this little plant grew, fostered by material which very few communities are blessed with, but the leading spirit did not live long to, see the results. John S. Hayes, our first chairman and founder, died March 7, 1898, during the first year of its existence. The first literary treat given under the auspices of the Society was by Dr. John Fiske, of Cambridge, celebrated the world over in his department. It was given in Unitarian Hall on a Sunday evening before a large audience. His subject was General Lee of Revolutionary Fame, whose headquarters during the siege of Boston in 1775 were in the old house on Sycamore Street, where we held our meetings for some few years. December, 1898, there was held in Union Hall, Union Square, an Historical Festival, continuing for one week, depicting various historic events in the life o

Since then the committee on essays has furnished for us at stated intervals each season a series of topics by persons celebrated in historical research, touching, not only upon every detail of value to our own city, but upon subjects interesting to the lover and student of bygone days, most all of which have been published in the Society's organ, called Historic Leaves. The first number was issued early in 1902, and although published at considerable expense to us, it has been steadfastly continued until the present day, in the belief that without such an organ there would be no permanent record of the Society's work. It may not be appreciated fully in our day, but in time to come many of its subjects will be of inestimable value, like the Minutes of the Stamp Act, which could not be found, and were given up as destroyed, until some person eager for

What better building could be erected in our midst? Like all organizations, death has entered into our midst, taking away some helpful workers. None will be more missed than our first vice-president, Luther B. Pillsbury, who died in 1905, and who was ever constant and interested in the growth of our Society. Also Mrs. Martha Perry Lowe, President Capen, of Tufts College, Quincy A. Vinal, and a few others. Having now covered the principal part of our doings the past ten years, we are working for still better results in the next decade to come.

k back on time, that short period marks many an important and pleasant period in any society. Pursuant to a call made by circular June 17, 1897, by the late John S. Hayes, Esq., fifteen prominent citizens of Somerville met at the Public Library on the evening of June 29, 1897, and a temporary organization was then made by the choice of John S. Hayes as chairman and Dr. E. C. Booth as secretary. After remarks made by those present and letters read from prominent citizens approving the movement, it was then and there voted that it is the sense of this meeting that an historical society be formed, and that a committee be appointed to formulate a plan of ory step this little plant grew, fostered by material which very few communities are blessed with, but the leading spirit did not live long to, see the results.

Hon. George A. Bruce was elected first president, together with an efficient council, and re-elected in April following, it being our first annual meeting, though he resigned August 24, 1898, while in office.
