Out-of-town attendees arrived Wed. and Thurs. (July 6 & 7). Local members met us at the library Thursday and/or Friday morning. Rebecca Stout Bradbury, one of Mr. Stout's daughters, joined us at the library and for dinner on Thursday at Legal Seafoods, Park Square.

Thursday evening's dinner was at Maggianos Little Italy.

For some New Yorkers, the experience of taking an Amtrack train and the Boston MTA "B" line was almost as interesting as the archives!

Unfortunately, two days with such a vast collection is not nearly enough time. Some of us hope to return soon.
