To all Saugonians near and far
Progress report on our proposed new book
about the People of Saugus 1900 - 2000
Our goal is to gather and flesh out a list of Saugonians of these
hundred years, including both those who have moved on in this
mobile society and those who have stayed here, to leave a record
of them and this century for history.
We are looking for a broad spectrum of people: those
whose lives were dedicated to service, to their community or
to mankind in general; those with careers in the world of letters,
art, science, medicine, sports, etc.; those who might be termed
ordinary who made lasting impact on their neighborhoods or their
town by their deeds, their personalities, their character or
even their idiosyncrasies; and families who over an extended
period of time by their presence were influential factors in
And let us not overlook the controversial among us who lent spice
to these times! Self-nominations are welcome.
We are waiting to hear from you at
John Burns, 30 Cliff Road, Saugus, MA 01906
