Claflin Family Association Establishes Archives
at the Hopkinton (MA) Historical Society
With the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding the Claflin Family Archives are now a reality. The Claflin Family Association (CFA) had agreed to the establishment of an archive at Hopkinton, MA Historical Society at the July 2012 Reunion. On November 10, 2012, CFA President George Claflin and Hopkinton Historical Society President Bill Shaw (pictured above) signed the agreement. The CFA presented a check as a contribution to the Society. Work on the Archives is scheduled for spring and fall.
“The file cabinet and storage wardrobe have arrived and are ready for the items we have had in storage,” said Archive Committee Chairman, John Pillis. Donated articles are catalogued for placement. The catalogue of current items will be available for the Claflin Reunion in July. If you have an artifact you would like for the Claflin Archives, contact John Pillis, Archive Committee Chairman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
