Charles E. Crowley

Members, staff and friends of the Society are saddened by the passing of Charles E. Crowley, who died on Thursday, November 20, 2014. Charlie joined the OCHS in 1976 and was elected to the Board of Directors in 1986. In recent years he was a member of the Executive Committee and served as Secretary of the Society. A lifelong student of Taunton history, Charlie took special interest in the city’s photographic history. Among the several books he authored or co-authored was a picture postcard history of Taunton that was published by the Society in 1992. Over the years Charlie generously shared both his photographs and his love of history with Society members, and his loss is keenly felt.
