    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."

    Notes:

    Charles Edward Whitmore's contribution to the Secretary's Fourth Report, Harvard class of 1907:

    SHORTLY after graduation I sailed for Europe spending a year in study at Athens; I then returned to Harvard to work for a Ph.D., receiving that degree in 1911. I was appointed instructor in English in June of that year, a position which I still hold. My earlier inclinations would have led me to teach Greek, but no opening in that field appeared, and I am now more than ever convinced that teaching Freshman composition is by no means the hopeless and thankless task it is so often considered, but a chance to render real and needed service to Harvard and to the community. I am at present completing a book on composition, which I hope to be able to publish within a year.

    During the summer of 1914 I was in Italy, and was delayed there by the outbreak of the war, but succeeded in returning without mishap or special incident. Otherwise I have remained in Cambridge, dividing my time between College duties and literary work.
