Mayor Howard Whitmore, Jr. collection 1929-2008

The City of Newton owns a wealth of historic materials that speak to the community's social, cultural, and governmental past. These materials reflect the civic life of, and provide insight into, Newton from the 19th through the early 20th century, a time when Newton was transforming from agriculture to industry and becoming a suburban Boston residential community. Presented here are photographs, correspondence, news clippings, programs, documents, and other items from the personal files of Howard Whitmore, Jr., former state legislator and Mayor of Newton.
