There's currently a group in town assembling information to produce a book documenting Saugus from 1900 -- 2000. They are now looking for some pretty specific information and asked us if we'd post their request:

The Saugus Book, 1900 -- 2000, asks help in gathering information about the Saugus amateur football league operating 1925-1936. Teams: Saugus Town Team, Saugus Eagles, Bristow Street Pals, Pratt A.C., Washington Square Club, the University Club. We are looking for pictures, rosters, records, etc.

We are also looking for information on the Saugus fishing fleet in the early part of this century.

Please call if you can help.
