Calm Before the Storm

(This post is part of a series about my research of Fitchburg architect H.M. Francis)

Sorry, still research talk here, no commentary on the recent uptick of stormy weather in Massachusetts.
I've completed the data entry for the previous H.M. Francis inventories (mentioned here) and all that is left to do is go through the physical blueprints and architectural drawings once more.
Total number of entries thus far, for those of you keeping score at home is 438.
There are duplicates as well as possible incorrect entries in this total and it will be widdled down to a more approximate number soon.

This year, I wanted to combine all previous Francis lists into one and then delete duplicates and add more information accordingly. Last year, I took a similar approach but did not effectively keep track of where certain information was coming from. The resulting inventory from last year, although a good general idea of structures designed by Francis and his firm, was more confusing than accessible -- hence the starting over process.
