This page is designed to provide easy access to selected information on  the History and Clean-Up of the Henry Wood's Sons Paint Factory Site.  This information was obtained either from the Wellesley College Archives (historical information) or the office of Barry Monahan (recent information and analytical data). From this page, one can obtain online listings and Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets of  the documents which have been collected, organized, and deposited in the Wellesley College Science Library.  The documents themselves may be obtained by asking for the "Paintshop Pond Papers" at the Science Library circulation desk where the boxed materials are stored.

A. Documents on History: The Wellesley College Archives have extensive materials on  the history of the Paintshop Pond site and the surrounding area where the Henry Wood's Sons Company was located.
