VML Cultural Series Wednesday Lecture
Ventress Memorial Library, Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm
A History of Howard Johnson's: How a Massachusetts Soda Fountain Became an American Icon
presented by Anthony M. Sammarco, Author and Historian
Wednesday, January 25, 7-8:30 p.m. (snow date is Wednesday, February 1)
Free and open to the public; no tickets required. Program Room is handicapped accessible
Howard Johnson created an orange-roofed empire of ice cream stands and restaurants that stretched from Maine to Florida and all the way to the West Coast. Popularly known as the Father of the Franchise Industry," Johnson delivered good food and prices that brought appreciative customers back for more. The attractive white Colonial Revival restaurants, with eye-catching porcelain tile roofs, illuminated cupolas and sea blue shutters, were described in "Reader's Digest" in 1949 as the epitome of "eating places that look like New England town meeting houses dressed up for Sunday." Boston historian and author Anthony M. Sammarco recounts how Howard Johnson introduced twenty-eight flavors of ice cream, the "Tendersweet" clam strips, grilled frankfurts and a menu of delicious and traditional foods that families eagerly enjoyed when they traveled."
Referred to as the “Balzac of Boston History,” Anthony Mitchell Sammarco is a noted historian and author of over sixty books on the history and development of Boston, and he lectures widely on the history and development of his native city. He commenced writing in 1995, and his books Lost Boston, The History of Howard Johnson’s: How A Massachusetts Soda Fountain Became a Roadside Icon, and The Baker Chocolate Company: A Sweet History have made the bestsellers list. Boston’s Back Bay in the Victorian Era, Dorchester: Volume II, Dorchester Then & Now, Boston’s North End (and Il North End di Boston in Italian) and the Great Boston Fire of 1872, are among his most popular books.
Mr. Sammarco is employed at Boston based Payne Bouchier, Fine Builders.
He has taught at The Urban College of Boston since 1997, where his courses led to him being named Educator of the Year. He wrote Boston’s Immigrants for the widely diverse ethnic base of students to use in his course on Boston immigration; he serves on the Leadership Council. He has received the Bulfinch Award from the Doric Dames of the Massachusetts State House and the Washington Medal from Freedom Foundation, and a lifetime achievement from the Gibson House Museum and was named Dorchester town historian by Raymond L. Flynn, mayor of Boston, for his work in history. He was elected a fellow of the Massachusetts Historical Society, is a member of the St. Botolph Club, the First Corps Cadets and the Boston Author’s Club and is a proprietor of the Boston Athenaeum. In his volunteer work, he is the treasurer of the Victorian Society, New England Chapter. He is past president of the Bay State Historical League and the Dorchester Historical Society.
He lives in Boston and in Osterville on Cape Cod. (added from Eventkeeper)
