“Lowell and the Law” this Sunday

On Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 2 pm at the Lowell National Park Visitor Center at 246 Market Street (across from Athenian Corner), I will give a Moses Greeley Parker Lecture on Lowell and the Law.

Lowell’s explosive growth as a center of textile manufacturing brought with it a boom in legal business. From its founding up until the present day, judges, lawyers and litigants from Lowell have had a profound effect on the jurisprudence and legal culture of Massachusetts. At this talk, I will discuss the famous and the infamous cases and personalities that contributed to Lowell’s legal legacy.

The talk is free and requires no advance registration. I hope you can join us.
