Description

This scrapbook documents aspects of George Christopher Kendall’s early life and career from 1903-1944. Kendall was born on August 22, 1885 in British Guiana, South America. He was employed as a letter carrier for the government post office from 1901 until 1910 and later managed a theatrical group called the Merry Makers. Kendall emigrated to the U.S. in 1911 but after four years left for Canada to work for the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. Between the years of 1915 and 1921, Kendall travelled between Canada and the U.S. to attend Armstrong Tech High School in Washington D.C. and New York Electric School in New York City. During his residency, he studied at the Wheeler Prep School. He then entered Suffolk Law School in 1924 and graduated in 1928 but never practiced law. Kendall spent most of his adult life in Boston and Woburn, MA. The scrapbook includes his Canadian passport, employment papers, handwritten journals, academic certificates, license renewals, wedding invitations, personal photographs, cancelled will, and sheet music written by Kendall.
