Massachusetts Mayors’ Club

Lawrence Public Library

Mayor Scanlon and the Lawrence’s Board of Aldermen hosted the Massachusetts Mayors’ Club. 60 mayors and ex-mayors of Massachusetts cities and their wives and guests arrived on the morning of September 24, 1913 at the train station in South Lawrence. They were driven to various points of interest in automobiles. Later in the day, dinner was served at the Merrimack Country Club. The final event of the day before departure was viewing from the Duck Bridge the operatives leaving the mills for their homes.

The one item in this collection is a program for meeting of the Massachusetts Mayors’ Club, which took place Wednesday, September 24, 1913 in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The program is one piece of tan paper folded to make four pages 18 x 12 cm. Pages 2 and 3 list a schedule of events including a view from the Duck Bridge of “operative leaving the mills.” The final page has a short history of the city and ends with “We Weave the World’s Worsteds” in bold type. Printed by Rushforths Critic Press.
