PHOTO OF THE DAY: Dyer Family Donates Collection To Framingham State

FRAMINGHAM – The family of Edwina Weston-Dyer is donating her research on Harmony Grove to Framingham State University.

Today, May 20, the University held a reception with the family to thank them for their generous donation of more than 40 boxes.

The donation includes documents and artifacts related to the research of Charles and Edwina Weston-Dyer on the historical significance of a natural amphitheater known as Harmony Grove near downtown Framingham. The Grove was where the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society gathered from 1846-1865 for rallies, speeches, and celebrations, including a famous July 4th event.

Charles A. Dyer attended the event with his son Adam and a handful of other family members. Charles and Edwina lived in Framingham for a while.

Susan Nicholl from Senate President Karen Spilka’s office presented a citation to Rev. Adam Lawrence Dyer during the reception.

SOURCE will have a full report with more photos and video later Memorial Day weekend.

Editor’s Note: Updated son’s name to Adam.
