History of Cambridge

Charles Sullivan, Executive Director of the Cambridge Historical Commission joined us.  Charles has been the ED for 40 years.


Charles' latest project was a book twenty years in the making and clocking in at a 944 pages, "Building Old Cambridge," co-written by Susan Maycock, an architectural historian and the survey director for the commission.  The book by the 2 prominent members of the Historical Commission, covers the evolution of Cambridge development since its foundation in 1630. 


Using the city's first settlement near Harvard Square -- later referred to as "Old Cambridge" -- as the jumping off point, the book explores how the city's changing population affected its architectural style -- from West Indian planters, who built summer estates in the 1750s, to suburbanites in the 1850s and Harvard College's annual flood of professors and students.
