Ken Liss has been president of the Brookline Historical Society since June 2009. A librarian at Boston University, he has lived in Brookline since 1996.
They may not fit right away into a formal presentation or a broader theme, but these little tidbits help tell the big story of the town, what it is and what it has been.
I started this blog to share, informally, some of what I find as I wander through what I call the thickets of historical research. It will be an idiosyncratic assortment: people, places, and events, big and small, that I've found interesting, amusing, poignant, or peculiar, or that otherwise caught my eye.
I hope others will enjoy coming along on these rambles through the past while adding to their own knowledge of Brookline and its history.
