    Margaret Pearmain Welch (1893-1984): Proper Bostonian, Activist, Pacifist, Reformer, Preservationist

    With Elizabeth F. Fideler, EdD, Research Fellow, Center on Aging & Work, Boston College

    Elizabeth Fideler will be discussing her most recent book about Margaret Pearmain Welch, a Proper Bostonian from Louisburg Square who defied the mores of her social set and got away with it. Her country house was the 1787 Nixon House on Edmands Road, situated between the Millwood Hunt Club on one side and the meetinghouse of the Framingham Friends (which she cofounded) on the other, with Stearns Farm directly across the road, managed by her companion and caregiver Penelope Turton.
