How Maynard Became Maynard

Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak about the process by which proposals were submitted to create a new town, and how the boundaries of that new town were set. Prior to Maynard becoming Maynard, land south of the Assabet River was part of Sudbury, north of the river, Stow.

Growth of the woolen mill and other factories powered by the river resulted in a population explosion on the border, far from the churches and schools of the primarily farmland towns. Petitions were submitted for (and against) creation of a new town. Compromises were made on size. The new town made compensation payments. Given that Amory Maynard owned much of the land and employed most of the people, the town naming vote was “unanimous.”

Assabet River Floods and Droughts

Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak about how Assabet River floods and droughts have affected the town.

Floods, those more recent somewhat tempered by flood-control dams built upstream, have wreaked havoc on Maynard – washing out bridges and flooding downtown buildings, including the mill complex. These were often the results of spring rains combined with snow melt, or in the fall, torrential rains delivered by hurricanes. August 1955, the high water crest of 8.94 feet from Hurricane Diane was the highest the river has been since record keeping began in 1942. Children witnessing that flood were told be their parents of the flood of 1927 that had wrecked the Waltham Street bridge.

Droughts are never as memorable as floods, but every summer the river slows to a low, slow stream, and sometimes less than that.

Digital Equipment Corporation (Maynard Sesquicentennial Series)

Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak about the rise and fall of Digital Equipment Corporation, a 41-year arc that started in 1957 with Kenneth “Ken” Olsen and Harlan Anderson renting a bit of space in the mill buildings, peaked in size and sales in 1990 with the mill complex being the world headquarters of a 125,000 employee empire that reached $14 billion in annual sales, then as a result of management and technology missteps, repeatedly downsized, had a fire sale of assets, and was finally sold to Compaq Corporation in 1998. At one point, Governor Francis Sargent had declared Maynard the “Minicomputer Capital of the World.” All that remains is a modest marker next to the Assabet River that reads “KENNETH OLSEN PLAZA.”

Discovering Cousins Using DNA: Exploring Your Autosomal DNA Matches

This talk will show you how to explore your matches and use the tools available at the major DNA testing companies: AncestryDNA, FamilyTreeDNA, MyHeritage and 23andMe. It will focus on practical ways to discover how you are related to your autosomal DNA cousins. Case studies using matches at each testing company will illustrate methods you can use to connect with new cousins who can help you grow your family tree. This talk assumes you are considering testing or have tested at one of the major DNA testing companies.

She also has expertise in New England, New York (both city and state), and German research.
