Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection consists of the papers of environmental advocate Elizabeth S. Houghton, including meeting minutes, reports, newspaper clippings, notes, newsletters, correspondence, and other papers documenting her work with the Neponset River Watershed Association and other organizations in the Boston area.

Biographical Sketch

Elizabeth S. (Sherburne) Houghton was an environmental advocate in the Boston area and a founder and board member of the Neponset River Watershed Association (NepRWA). Originally the Neponset Conservation Association (the name was changed in the 1980s), the NepRWA was founded in 1967 "to protect and restore the Neponset River, its tributaries and surrounding watershed lands." In the early 1970s, NepRWA and other environmental groups successfully defeated the Southwest Corridor Project, the proposed extension of Interstate 95 into Boston across the Fowl Meadow wetland in Milton, Mass. In 1987, the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) re-routed its Orange Line there. Houghton was also a board member of the Association for Public Transportation (APT) and was involved with many other environmental and transportation-related organizations. In 1996, she won an Environmental Merit Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Houghton was born in Brookline, Mass. In 1942, she married Dr. John Denison Houghton, and they had two daughters, Sylvia and Natalie. She died in Needham at the age of 89.

Collection Description

The Elizabeth S. Houghton papers include material related to the protection of the Neponset River Watershed and the environment more generally, papers documenting Houghton's opposition to the I-95 extension through Fowl Meadow to Boston, and material about other transportation and urban development projects in the Boston area, their environmental impact, and related legislative action. The collection consists primarily of meeting minutes and reports of the interrelated organizations with which Houghton was involved, many with Houghton's annotations; a large number of newspaper clippings; notes by Houghton; newsletters; correspondence; and other papers.

Arrangement

Due to the interrelated nature of the materials, Elizabeth Houghton's original arrangement has been substantially preserved. Papers within folders have not been re-arranged, and Houghton's original folder titles were retained, with the exception of occasional re-phrasing for consistency and titles assigned to blank or missing folders. The folders were then arranged alphabetically so that related materials are filed together (see the Detailed Description of the Collection below). However, in keeping with Houghton's recordkeeping methods, researchers will find a significant amount of duplication and overlap of dates and subjects, and most folders contain many different types of interrelated papers. Original folders were replaced only as needed.

Acquisition Information
