About the Author
Albert B. Southwick, the seventh of nine children, was born in 1920 and grew up in Leicester, Massachusetts, on the farm that had been in his family for generations. He attended Mannville School, a one-room wooden building where a single teacher taught all eight grades. He went on to Leicester High School, Clark University in Worcester, four years in the United States Navy during World War II, back to Clark for his M.A. degree, and on to Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he did a year of graduate work in U.S. history. From 1950-1952, he was a historian (civilian) for the U.S. Seventh Army, based in Stuttgart, Germany. On his return from Germany, he worked briefly as a reporter for the Providence Journal before coming to the Worcester Telegram and Evening Gazette in 1952 as an editorial writer. He was chief editorial writer for the newspapers from 1968 to his retirement in 1986. In 1953 Albert and Shirley Southwick (1920-1998) built their house on Marshall Street on land probably owned by William Earle in the 1720s. Much of the back land was made into one of the first disc golf courses in the area by Jason Southwick in the 1990s. He built his house on the south end. Albert B. Southwick has written eight books and two librettos: The Worcester Club at 100 Years, The Johnson Family of Hyde Park & Sag Harbor, Once-Told Tales of Worcester County, More Once-Told Tales of Worcester County, 150 Years of Worcester: 1848-1998, Down on the Farm Volume I, WWII Correspondence between Albert B.
