40 years later, ring’s owner found

A bizarre coincidence at the Boyden Library in Foxborough helped librarians solve a local mystery and return a long-lost item to a former local high school student.

For three years, Kristopher John Brooks’s class ring from Foxborough High School sat in the lost-and-found box at the ­library and evaded librarians’ attempts to identify its owner. For 40 years, Brooks, a 57-year-old Edmonton, Canada, resident, still reminisced from time to time about the ring, which he said he lost when he was 17 and attended Foxborough High.
