About the Author
Ken Newcomb, a lifelong resident and community activist of Newton Upper Falls, devoted many years of his life in compiling this definitive local history of the village he loved. Over the years, Mr. Newcomb was actively involved in nearly every Upper Falls community effort. He was a member of the Upper Falls Advisory Committee, president of the Upper Falls Improvement Association. In the 1970’s he was a fervent advocate for the establishment of Newton’s first Local Historic District in Newton Upper Falls. He was also longtime member and supporter of the Friends of Hemlock Gorge. The ‘Friends’ have worked tirelessly through the years to preserve Hemlock Gorge, the spectacular park that is the centerpiece of the Upper Falls neighborhood and Mr. Newcomb was always central to that effort. Since the completion of the manuscript of “Makers of the Mold”, the entire unabridged book has been hosted on the Friends of Hemlock Gorge’s web site (http://www.hemlockgorge.org). Mr. Newcomb died in 2002 but his legacy will live on for many years to come as the man who singlehandedly preserved much of the rich history of Upper Falls and spent much of his life in the service of the village knew and loved so well.
