History of Lowell and Its People, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from History of Lowell and Its People, Vol. 1 To the city which gave me such education as I was able to assimilate in boyhood, through its schools, its library and other institutions, and through its industrial and commercial life, I should like to think that some reader may feel this book to be a tribute of gratitude. It is meant to be that, as well as a record of happenings. Lowell of 1885 and thereabout stays in memory in loco parentis - a third parent, as it were, complementing by the influence of training and surroundings whatever of endowment may have come down from respected ancestors. I believe that every man and woman who has had the advantage of spending a childhood in our city will gladly acknowledge his indebtedness to a community in which, whatever its shortcomings, a spirit of friendliness and helpfulness has always been paramount. From my early infancy until as a young man I went elsewhere, our city gave continuously of its opportunities, and, imperfectly as I received them, I still might hope to have the ability to render some small gift in grateful recognition. This work may or may not come under that category- it at least has been compiled with a hope of its being to some possessor of inspirational as well as informational value. In gathering material and in otherwise preparing myself to write the work that follows, I have tried to think of the community as a social organism, a modern analogue of the "City-State" of the ancients, its development, era by era, to be traced at least suggestively and picturesquely. The so-called economic interpretation of history has come to appeal strongly to most men of my temperament and turn of mind, and this particular subject, which was assigned me to cover by the publishers in January, 1917, has naturally lent itself to a somewhat intensive study of the impingement of successive culture epochs on a single locality. Without, therefore, neglecting the conventional topics of an archivist and biographical sort that are inevitably taken up in histories of this kind, I have endeavored to stress the basic industries of the locality and the reaction of the inhabitants upon the conditions created by these. This treatment has necessitated departing somewhat from the departmentalizing that is usual in local histories.
