Local History Talk: Schools Through the Centuries

Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak about the 250-year history of public schools in town. The year 1892 saw a consolidation of the town’s four small schools – all of which pre-dated the creation of Maynard – into one two-story, twelve-room, wooden building at the Nason Street site, on the same stone foundation that is now the first floor of the library. The high school Class of 1892 chose orange and black as the school colors. At that time, state law required that a child shall go to school twenty weeks in each year until 14 years old. Entering its 150th year (ten schools and five fires later), Maynard has three schools on neighboring campuses. The student population, which had peaked in the “baby-boom” years at 2,106 students in 1971, declined to the mid-teens, but recently is on the rise.

This program is the seventh talk in the Maynard Sesquicentennial Local History Series. Learn about upcoming programs and view previously recorded programs at www.maynardpubliclibrary.org/may150

The Maynard Family (Maynard Sesquicentennial History Series) - Zoom

Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak how the Maynard family came to build, own and operate a woolen mill in what was initially Assabet Village, later renamed Town of Maynard. Amory Maynard and his wife Mary (Priest) Maynard were both descendants of Puritan colonist families that had arrived circa 1630s. Amory was 16 years old when he inherited a mill in Marlborough from his father. He added a construction business. When the City of Boston bought his millpond in 1846, for a water supply, he partnered with William Knight to build a woolen mill. The ever-expanding mill was part-owned and operated by Amory, and then Lorenzo, his oldest son, until it went bankrupt in 1898 (bought and operated for an additional 52 years by the American Woolen Company). There are many living descendants, but none in Maynard.

This program is part of the Maynard Sesquicentennial Local History Series. Learn about upcoming programs and view previously recorded programs at www.maynardpubliclibrary.org/may150

Finding Sanctuary: Book Talk with Artist Barry Van Dusen

Over the last decade, Barry Van Dusen has participated in four artist-in-residence programs around New England.  In this one-hour illustrated talk, Barry will share stories and paintings from his previous residencies, with a focus on his latest and most ambitious residency project.

During a 4 ½ year period (2015-2019), Barry visited all 61 of Mass Audubon’s wildlife sanctuaries, nature centers and museums, producing drawings and paintings at each location. You’ll hear about his adventures exploring Mass Audubon properties all around Massachusetts, and learn more about the approach Barry uses to meet the demands and challenges of working on location.  He’ll also show how field sketches and studies are used in the studio for larger, more complex works.  Join Barry in this celebration of the rich biological diversity in Massachusetts and the Mass Audubon sanctuary system. 

Copies of Barry's new book Finding Sanctuary will be available for purchase at the event.

This will be a live in-person event, but we suggest you register in case we have to switch to Zoom for safety issues.

Author Event - Edwin Hagenstein (The Language of Liberty: A Citizen's Vocabulary)
Join author Ed Hagenstein to hear about his latest work,The Language of Liberty: A Citizen’s Vocabulary. Register for the Zoom link here
 
The Language of Liberty: A Citizen’s Vocabulary is a substantive lexicon of 101 political terms with explorations of each term’s meaning in the broader context of American life and history. Addressing nearly every aspect of our political system, and doing so in a non-partisan, accessible manner, it reads like an owner’s manual for American government. This book is timeless, yet needed now more than ever.
 

Edwin (Ed) Hagenstein worked in educational publishing for three decades as a textbook writer and editor, specializing in history and social studies. His previous book American Georgics: Writings on Farming, Culture, and the Land (Yale University Press, 2011) won Honorable Mention for the 2011 New England Book Festival in the Compilations/Anthologies category. Hagenstein lives and works in northern New Mexico.

Trains, Trolleys, Buses, & Cars in Maynard (Maynard Sesquicentennial History Series)

Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak about means of transportation used spanning Maynard’s 150-year history. That starts with horses, plus ‘shank’s mare’ (walking). Until the Congregational Church was built, church services were several miles away. The railroad arrived in 1850. Passenger service ended in 1958, freight not many years later. The Golden Age of bicycles spanned the 1890s. Electric-powered trolleys arrived in 1901; service connected Concord to Hudson, with a spur to the South Acton train station. The trolley era ended in 1923. Lovell Bus Lines, founded by John Lovell in 1923, operated until 1972. And then, cars!! The first, 1899, was a Stanley Steamer, owned by Dr. Frank Rich. By 1910 there were two car dealers in town, repair shops, gas stations, car rental businesses, attempts to control speeding, and the first reported accident. Lastly, from 1948 to 2016, Sidney Mason and then his son Jack operated “Sid’s Airport” out of their backyard, on Summer Street.

Food Cooperatives (Maynard Sesquicentennial History Series)

Maynard author and historian David Mark will speak about the long and storied history of food cooperatives that existed in Maynard, from oldest, to most recent, to possible future. With the grandiose name “Order of the Sovereigns of Industry,” the first co-operative society opened in 1875. Renamed “Riverside Co-operative Association,” it lasted to 1936. Newly arrived Finnish immigrants asked that Riverside hire Finnish-speaking staff. Rebuffed, they started the Kaleva Co-operative Association, later to become the United Co-operative Society of Maynard. In time, United added a bakery, diary delivery, ice delivery, a fuel oil company, gas station and credit union. At one point in time United was one of the ten largest co-ops in the country. Kaleva/United was in business 1907-1973, closing after the immigrant descendants assimilated and moved away. Home to a food co-op again? As of fall 2021, the Assabet Co-op Market has raised more than $1.5 million dollars and is actively searching for a site.
