Pawtucket: Volume II, by Elizabeth J. Johnson, James L. Wheaton, and Susan L. Reed
Pawtucket Volume II covers the history of the city from 1864 to 1996, and highlights the accomplishments of its citizens. Famous Pawtucket natives like singer Nelson Eddy and major-leaguer Chester "Chet" Nichols are spotlighted, as well as less well-known but equally significant contributors to the civic and social history of the city. Many images in this volume have been drawn from the collections of the Spaulding House Research Library, the Pawtucket Public Library, and the Times newspaper. In poring through these vast archives, authors Johnson, Wheaton, and Reed have produced two books destined to bring back memories and enliven interest in Pawtucket's fascinating past.
