The Boston Post Cane was the brainchild of Edwin A. Grozier, publisher of the now defunct Boston Post, a large circulation newspaper. In 1909 he sent gold-headed canes to the Board of Selectmen in 700 towns throughout New England. Likely the idea was to publicize his newspaper. Manufactured by J. F. Fradley Co., the canes had a 14-carat head with the inscription, “Presented by the Boston Post to the oldest citizen of [the town’s name]”. The selectmen were asked to present it to the oldest person in town, as long as they remained there, and upon death, pass it on to the subsequent oldest person.

Unlike many towns, Pittsfield retains its original cane. To avoid losing it, in 1999 the select board asked Paul Richardson to make a case so that it could be properly displayed in the town office. Six replicas were purchased and are now given to the oldest person to keep permanently. Bertha Hammen received the first one in 2003.

Through the years the cane has been passed along intermittently. There have been times when it was returned but not given out for several years. Unfortunately the town does not have a list of the persons to whom it has been given. Pittsfield Historical Society Historian Larry Berkson is putting together a list and would appreciate receiving any information about recipients. He can be reached at or (603) 798-3984.
