Voices from the Back Stairs: 
Domestic Servants in 19th & 20th Century New England

Presented by Jennifer Pustz, museum historian with Historic New England

Saugus Public Library Community Room

Thursday
  April 30, 2015  at 6:30 pm

The lecture is free and open to the public.
voices-back-stairs.jpg
Fans of Downton Abbey will love this program.  Although based on the servant
experience in New England, there are many similarities.  The illustrated lecture
is based on years of research on domestic service.  Dr. Pustz uses period
domestic manuals and ephemera to explore the lives of servants in New England
during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  Dr. Pustz coordinates social history
research for area historic sites, exhibitions, and publications. 
This free program is generously sponsored by the Saugus Library Foundation.

There are some fascinating records to be found. To step back in history,
try a search of the "Records of Ye Towne Meetings of Lyn 1771" for "British".

High School Yearbooks, Annual Reports, Lists of Persons,
and other Town Documents  are also available.

Most of the Middle School Yearbooks are now online at the Archive!

The project was Federally funded through the Massachusetts Board
of Library Commissioners.  Scanning was done by the Digital Services
Department of the Boston Public Library.
All documents will eventually reside on the
Digital Commonwealth.
