This is the 17th century, Brandenburg family escutcheon (coat of arms). It was purchased by the actor Henry Irving (known inspiring Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula) in 1882 and then given by Irving to Isabella Stewart Gardner in 1902. The coat of arms is normally in the Museum’s Long Gallery, but is currently in our conservation labs being researched and restored.

    Naysayers don't get far when Dr. Bill Loesch is on the case
    He already has decades of community activism under his belt, but longtime Dorchester community leader Dr. Rev. Bill Loesch is focused on his next project. "Our goal is to convince the mayor to make an executive decision that all stores in Boston will no longer sell tobacco products," he says matter-of-factly during a recent sit-down interview in his Dorchester home.

  • James P Timilty Middle School reviewed by a parent

    I am at the school all the time my daughter went from C to an F in Civics. There was no contact from the teacher. I have been to every teacher-parent meeting, I have been active and present at the school. I attempted to contact the teacher several including going to the school physically and leaving messages. I called and requested a meeting. My daughter Hippa info was leaked by staff, sensitive info. There are some very good teachers here but, the bad ones can cost your child dearly. Great Principal and school police officer. I feel like she is safe there because of Mr. Perez and Mr. Mendes. The math teacher Mr. Santiago communicated well with me and we were able to bring my child's grade up in math
