The Education of Henry Wilson

Henry Wilson is perhaps the most famous Natickite in our town’s history. Rising from humble origins, Wilson eventually became a Senator, a General, and eventually the Vice President. In a new exhibit at the Morse Institute Library, the Natick Historical Society looks to explore Wilson’s personal history, especially his education and how that shaped the kind of person he would become.  Largely self-taught, Wilson was a voracious reader, a master of public speaking, and an experienced writer. To learn more about his education and accomplishments, be sure to come by The Education of Henry Wilson, in the Morse Room. On display now through May 2017.
