THE ESSIE GOLDEN
MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Miss Essie Golden was born in Malden in 1905 and educated there. She spent much of her career as a buyer for Lever Brothers, and worked for the Nedell Mail Advertising company for some years until her retirement in 1969. She made her home in Concord from 1941 until her death in 1988. She had a deep interest in music, particularly in opera and ballet, and also enjoyed writing prose and poetry. In Concord she was an environmental activist who was instrumental in the purchase of the Swamp Brook land by the Concord Natural Resources Commission. Miss Golden left a generous bequest to establish this Scholarship Fund, received in 1990.
