Excerpt from Proceedings of the Bostonian Society: At the Annual Meeting, January 17, 1911 Before his retirement from business Mr. Hunnewell had earned the title of a traveller, and the passion for roaming in foreign lands did not decline with years. He crossed the Atlantic no less than forty-eight times, and his experience in ocean voyagings, which began in the old sailing packet days, culminated only two years Since in the era of turbine engines and triple screws. The fruit of his travels and of the long periods spent abroad may be found in his England's Chronicle in Stone, The Imperial Island, The His torical Monuments of France, and The Lands of Scott. These titles form only a part of Mr. Hunnewell's literary work. The proceedings and publications of the various historical and literary societies with which he was connected bear witness to his active interest in the purposes for which they were founded.
