Home for Aged Men : Records, 1861-1916
Quantity29 cartons, 3 file boxes, 4 oversize volumes
The Home for Aged Men / Rogerson House collection was donated to the University of Massachusetts Boston Archives and Special Collection Department by Harvey Boulay, Executive Director of Rogerson House, on October 7, 1987.
The Home for Aged Men was incorporated in 1860 as a privately-funded residential home in Boston for "respectable aged and indigent men." The first home was on South Street in Boston. The home was moved to Springfield Street in 1870. In 1956 it was renamed Rogerson House in honor of a past president and director, Charles Edward Rogerson, and moved to Jamaica Plain, where it continues as a nursing home.
Scope and Content
The records of the Home for Aged Men/Rogerson House cover the years from its establishment in 1861, to 1977. The bulk of the records are for the years from 1861 to 1956. The collection is divided into three areas - corporate records, executive records, and client records - which reflect the organizational structure of the Home.
