Ironworks on the Saugus
The Lynn and Braintree Ventures of the company of Undertakers of the Ironworks in New England
Paperback, 328pp., with b/w photographs and drawings.
A history of the Lynn and Braintree ventures of the company of Undertakers of the Ironworks in New England and of the making of iron in America through the seventeenth century. It is an outgrowth of work on the Saugus Ironworks Restoration, a rather unique venture in industrial, civic, and scholarly co-operation in which it was my privilege to serve as research historian from the spring of 1949 to the autumn of 1954.
“An excellent detailed, and thoroughly documented study of the two iron works at Braintree and Saugus , but it also covers the early attempt at iron manufacture in Virginia, the first made upon this continent, a study of monopolies in England under Elizabeth, and the technology of iron making three hundred years ago…” – Essex Institute.
