Norm Morris, BA’61, of West Yarmouth, Massachusetts, has written two books, Ghetto Memories and Ghetto Memories Revisited, about growing up in the Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan areas of Boston. The books contain photographs and documents covering a hundred-year span, from the end of the immigration period in 1900 through 2000. He reports that colleges are using the texts as part of their Jewish sociological courses. Morris adds that the books are being made into video and DVD by Boston producers. He requests that Northeastern alumni contact him if they have photographs or movies taken in Dorchester, Roxbury, or Mattapan from the 1930s to the 1950s. E-mail Morris at
