Join us for a presentation and discussion of FHC member Elizabeth Fideler's latest book titled "Margaret Pearmain Welch (1893-1984): Proper Bostonian, Activist, Pacifist, Reformer, Preservationist." Margaret Welch grew up on Beacon Hill and as a child spent summers in the Pearmain House on Wayside Inn Road in Framingham. She resided in Louisburg Square for 60 years and was a quintessential grande dame and relentless activist. Her causes included women's suffrage, reproductive rights, world peace, and environmental protection. She left a tremendous legacy locally when she donated Stearns Farm and a larger 87.1 acre Welch Reservation to the Sudbury Valley Trustees.
