In May of 1973, Burlington attorney Charles Shea offered to buy the Union School (born 1897) from the town and replace it with something that would “complete the Common and improve its appearance.” Didn’t fly.

  1. I was reading about the 1973 graduates at BHS and their educational plans. I graduated in 1962, almost a different era. When I was a Junior I got to see the assistant guidance counselor (she was a recent college graduate) and she made some suggestions about a major and colleges that were economical. When I was a senior I had to see Mrs Billings, the head guidance counselor, who was the ex-Latin teacher. When I told her that I didn’t want to be a teacher or nurse (the only acceptable subjects for a female to major in) she said “Dorothy I don’t know what to do with you.” So followed the advice that the assistant gave me the year before and went to Northeastern and majored in Math.

  2. I love reading the news you publish about the old Burlington, I Still have many family members there and our daughter got married from Everett and now lives in Burlington and constantly meets people who know my family. Very interesting.
