A new book “Sudbury, 1890-1989, 100 years in the Life of a Town” will be featured in chapter installments on the “About Sudbury” Section of the Website. http://www.beta.sudbury.ma.us/about/default.asp
This 256-page sequel to A.S. Hudson’s History of Sudbury covers the period from Sudbury’s 250th birthday in 1889 to its 350th in 1989. Some significant events during that time include the Ku Klux Klan rally in August of 1925; Sudbury’s bid (or non-bid) to become the site for the headquarters of the United Nations and Giuseppi Cavicchio’s refusal to sell his water rights which scuttled Henry Ford’s plans to build an auto parts factory at the site of Charles O. Parmenter’s mill in South Sudbury.
The book’s index contains 650 names of people who have lived in town and contributed to its history.
