INTRODUCTION.




IN placing this book before the people of Somerville, I have endeav-
ored to make it complete, in regard to everything for which it was
originally intended. I do not claim that it is a historical work on
the City of Somerville, but I have endeavored to give to its sub-
scribers a complete photograph album of the men who, in the days
when Somerville was a town of scarcely more than a thousand
inhabitants, gave their time and energy to condud; the town aBairs in a manner
that would be for the best interests of all of the people, and continued to do so
until the town was made a city and they were called upon to give the charge of
affairs which had been so long in their keeping into the hands of the men who
from 1S72 until the present time have labored hard at City Hall and in the Sen-
ate Chamber and the House of Representatives on Beacon Hill in Boston, to
bring our municipality from a small town in 1S42, with a population of scarcely
more than a thousand, with an assessed valuation of taxable property of less than
half a million dollars, with only four district school-houses and four teachers, for
the support of which only $i,Soo was annually appropriated, and where no
churches were erefled in which the people might worship God ; to a city of
nearly sixty thousand inhabitants, all of whom are proud to claim it as their place
of residence; where the taxable property is valued at over fifty million dollars;
where we have twenty-six school buildings, with two hundred and forty-nine
teachers, for the support of which over $200,000 is expended annually ; where
we have thirty churches, and public property which is valued at $2,638,100.12.
With the photographs of these representative men of Somerville will be
found a short sketch of their lives, which in many cases is far too short to tell
of the many ways in which they have been a value to our city and to their
country at the time when it needed their services.

The book is supposed to contain the pictures of the last board of select-
men, all of the mayors, aldermen, representatives, senators, city clerks, solicitors,
treasurers, engineers, and the city messenger and clerk of committees, who have
in many ways lightened the burdens of those higher in office.

The publisher does not claim to have all of the city officials in this work,
for it would be by far too small to contain the portraits alone of all of the men
who, in hundreds of ways, have assisted in the builtling up of Somerville from
a small town to one of the largest ai\d fliost model cities in the Commonwealth ;
but, as far as I have been, I have endeavored to be thorough, and trust that the
public will find in looking over this work the familiar faces of many former
friends.

In some cases the cuts are not as clear as the publisher would like to have had

the best photographs of them that were in existence.
