I have been enjoying the "postcards" from Dorchester, thanks Earl. I was wondering if the DHS might have some materials related to a new project that I am hoping to launch. In working on my family's history in the Clam Point section, I have come across references to underground railroad activity in the neighborhood -- tunnels in the cellars of homes designed by Luther Briggs. I grew up in the Humphrey House (later called the Elsmere), and a house nearby also designed by Briggs was mentioned as a stop on the underground railroad. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions with respect to where I might find more information.

Hi Earl,

My article "A Dorchester Native, the Bomb, and Its Power to Transform an Ordinary Life" was just published in the Historical Journal of Massachusetts (Winter 2013). Eventually it will be posted online. I thought you might be interested. Thanks again for your input.

Earl- Thanks for coming out to the meet-n-greet last week. We'll be doing some follow-up in the next few weeks. Rachael is on spring break this week, but we're hoping to "go live" with the Flickr site soon after she gets back.

Earl-
Thanks for the note- we're working on converting to a new format for the job postings and you caught us in the middle! But here is the link to the posting on the Mass Humanities website: http://www.masshumanities.org/?p=fiscal

You have been so kind and helpful with all of my Franklin Park projects! Thank you so much!

Oh my goodness -- what a treasure trove! I will be in contact after I have had a chance to really study the site.
I lived in Dorchester for the first 24 years of my life and began my teaching career at the William E. Russell on Columbia Road. My family members will be delighted with the site as well.

Hi Earl,
I am interested in learning more about the Dorchester Historical Society. I grew up in the Clam Point neighborhood (old Victorian at 3 Mill Street that burned down many years ago) and some of my immediate family members still live in the area. A few years back, my mom (Edna Cardillo) was interviewed for a DHS project. Although frail, she is an active member of the Kit Clark (sp?) Senior Center. More later.
