DeMarzio & Gietulio

Recently I was given access by the Beaman Public Library in West Boylston to its carefully preserved archive of the writings of local resident Mary A. Cook dating from 1895 through 1928.

Her daily submittals to the Worcester Daily Telegram often included valuable insights into the activities at the construction of the Wachusett Reservoir from that are rich in the type of detail not found in the rather dry engineering reports of the Metropolitan Water Board.

Here is a small sample of human interest stories that I have uncovered thus far.

 

Thanks,
