    Notes:

    The web site of the Boston Public Library includes brief biographies of many former library trustees, including William Henry Whitmore, trustee from 1885 to 1888:

    "Born 1836 in Dorchester; died 1900 in Boston. Merchant, politician, genealogist, antiquarian. A descendant of Francis Whitmore who settled in Cambridge, MA, in 1648, William H. Whitmore attended both Boston Latin and English High Schools before entering his family's firm of commission merchants. While traveling to such places as India and Madagascar during his 25 years as a merchant, he studied law and painting. Elected to the Boston Common Council in 1874, Mr. Whitmore spent much of his energy promoting the preservation and publication of local records and concurrently served on the Boston Board of Record Commissioners. He became a city registrar in 1892 and supervised the publication of local and vital records in several multiple volume sets. Throughout his activities in Boston, Mr. Whitmore frequently contributed writings to the New England Historic Genealogical Society Register, the Nation, and the Massachusetts Historical Society, as well as published genealogies and histories of New England towns and families. While he supported the need to find expanded quarters for the growing public library, Trustee Whitmore disagreed on constructing a new building and eventually resigned his trusteeship because of its cost."

    From Wikipedia:

    "About 1868 he was one of the patentees of a machine for making sugar cubes, and in 1882 he patented one for making hyposulphite of soda. His 'Ancestral Tablets' (Boston, 1868) was an invention for genealogists, being a set of pages cut and arranged to admit the insertion of a pedigree in a condensed form."

    Of the firm of Lombard & Whitmore, merchants.

    "Charles Octavius, after the death of his father, went to the West Indies and lived in Barbadoes with his uncle, Isaiah C. Whitmore. He returned to New England and resided in Boston from 1825 to his death in 1885. In 1826 he formed a partnership with Israel Lombard, which continued until 1855. He retired from active business in 1872, remaining President of the Market Bank from 1860 to 1885, and holding different offices in the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, Agricultural Club, and kindred societies. From 1852 to 1862 his summers were passed in Lexington, where he had an estate which he devoted to experiments in the cultivation of fruits, vegetables and landscape gardening. He was Vestryman and Warden of Emmanuel Church, Boston, for many years. He spent the last years of his life in the enjoyment of his large library, collection of pictures, and the society of his family and friends.
