  • Notes 
    • Rowena was an attorney. She graduated from Boston University Law School at 19 years of age. She was the first woman to be elected to the School Committee in Chelsea. I was (Sylvia Stone Linden)five years old at the tim and can remember handing out cards asking people to vote for her. She had just turned 21 and thus became eligible to be elected. She was a beautiful person, in looksand ability.
