Description

Grown from a Framingham campus acorn collected in 1920, this tree grows in Boston.

ALUMNAE COUNCIL MEETING

"The thirty-sixth meeting of the Alumnae Council was held at May Hall on October 22.

Of interest to all was the fact that in May 1920 Miss Maverette Eddy [class of 1864] came to a council meeting and while walking about the campus picked up an acorn which she carried home. The acorn was planted and grew to be a large oak, now standing near her home at 301 South Huntington Street, Boston. Miss Eddy sent some leaves and a snapshot of the tree to the meeting."

- from page 3.

Note: It is possible that this historical address denotes 301 South Huntington Avenue, Jamaica Plain, MA, today known as the Mount Pleasant Home. There is a large tree there of appropriate age: https://goo.gl/maps/QLUKgVXX5r12
