Around 1 a.m., Rebecca Peterson wondered:
Is something happening in Harvard/Cambridge? Heard some big booms just now.
Erin Hill reported "three loud booms."
April added they sounded like a cannon or "huge things being dropped."
Chris Peterson writes a friend heard them along Mem. Drive.

In the process of readying the collection of photographs by Bertram Adams, we came across some very interesting biographical information on the photographer. Adams, a lifelong Brookline resident, was an inventor, politician, and most interestingly, a magician.
At age 18, Adams began his career as a magician with his first professional performance in Brookline’s All Saints Church in 1911. Adams was the President of the Society of American Magicians, the founder of the International Society for Mystic Research, and boasted owning one of the largest collections of books on magic in the country. He was also a great friend of magician Harry Houdini and had a substantial collection of Houdini memorabilia, including letters, autographed books, and pieces of equipment used by the great magician. (We wonder what ever happened to Adams’ collection!)
Adams referred to himself as a professional hobbyist and counted photography as one of his favorites. He had a full dark room in his Brookline home, which served as his studio. He also invented a slide rule that was used by fire departments, was fond of solving and deciphering codes, and had the uncanny ability to accurately describe a person by just hearing their voice on the telephone.
Apparently the 1,000-year lease on the Arnold Arboretum wasn't enough. The Herald reports Harvard owns nearly 90,000 acres of forestland in Romania and now the guy who sold Harvard some of that land has been implicated in a probe of whether he got the World's Smartest University to pay inflated prices in exchange for cash, a vacation and a Chrysler Sebring.

Cambridge Historical Commission’s Charlie Sullivan helped us out with our last photo mystery. Thanks to everyone who participated in our challenge.
Thanks to our friend, Charlie Sullivan, at Cambridge Historical Commission, we have identified another in our mystery photo series. The house was originally built on 14 Appian Way in 1821 but was moved to its new location at St. John’s Road in 1963, presumably to build Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.

Cambridge is serious about fun.
Not just for kids anymore, city planners say playing is an important part of creating healthy neighborhoods, and the Cambridge Arts Council’s “Let the Public Play” exhibit is aimed at doing just that.
