Raymond J. Callahan Collection

The Callahan Collection consists of nineteenth and twentieth century books pertaining to the forty towns located in the Middlesex County - towns such as Acton, Bedford, Cambridge, Dunstable, Everett, Framingham, Hopkinton, Malden, Newton, Reading, Stow, and Wakefield. The collection includes street directories, genealogies, town histories, travel guides, and works by or about local authors.

Raymond J. Callahan was the former editor-in-chief of the Framingham News, known today as the Middlesex News. Callahan had a deep interest in the history of Framingham and its surrounding area. This collection named in his honor is meant to support research in local history and genealogy.
