Until she retired in 2015 Martha Mayo directed the Center for Lowell History, University Library, UMass Lowell. Martha was committed to building the Special Collections and research files for students, faculty members, independent scholars, and the general public. Among her many Lowell research interests were Black History, Women’s History, and Immigrant History.
The COVID19 crisis created time for her to develop some of these stories which the Center for Lowell History is pleased to share.
