Treasures of Hamilton History

Treasures of Wenham History cover

In April of 2015, Jack Hauck, a retired journalist and author of Treasures of Wenham History, began to release chapters of a corresponding work about Hamilton.  This is a work in progress, although some idea of its scope may be seen from the table of contents below.  The Hamilton-Wenham Library thanks Mr. Hauck for his generosity in sharing this second collection of digital documents for the public to access.

Here is a brief biography with more information about Jack Hauck. He can be contacted at
