New Collection Available to Researchers
Thanks to the hard work of volunteer Meghan Bailey we have another new collection available to researchers. "The Moulton Batchelder Papers, 1863-1929" detail the adult life of Moulton Batchelder, who worked as both a district policeman and a corporation officer for the Lawrence mills. The collection contains information about crimes committed in Lawrence, accidents that occurred in the mills, the history of the Batchelder family, the Bread and Roses Strike, the trial of Arturo Giovannitti and Joseph Ettor, as well as the details of the daily life of Moulton Batchelder. Records include letters, photographs, objects, and diaries. If you are interested in the history of Lawrence, policework, labor, or crimes, you should definitely take a look at this collection. You can view the finding aid here. For more information, or to see the collection itself, you can contact the LHC staff at 978-686-9230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
