A collection of news articles, photos, photocopies of articles and photos collected together in a binder accounting for the history of the Boston Post Cane.

The canes, an estimated 431 in all, were presented to town Selectmen across northern New England by Newspaper publisher Edwin Grozier in 1909 to promote the now-defunct Boston Post.

Grizier proposed that the towns honor thier oldest residents by presenting them with the canes.

The canes were manufactured by J. F. Fradley & company of New York and made of Gaboon ebony shipped from the African Congo, according to a letter mailed out by Grazier to selectmen. The gold heads of the canes were engraved with the name of the Boston Post as well as the name of each town.
