Last Saturday was a lovely day for a walk. Participants in our Mather Redux symposium did just that, taking in significant sites in Cotton Mather's life in a tour led by Alex Goldfeld of the North End Historical Society. The North End Waterfront website has a recap and slideshow of photos by our own Cary Hewitt for those of you who couldn't attend in person.
The symposium Mather Redux: New perspectives on Cotton Mather culminated on Mather's home turf this weekend in Boston's North End. Alex Goldfeld, Board President and Historian of the North End Historical Society expertly led a tour exploring places related to the much-misunderstood cleric, physician and philosopher.
