The Burroughs Newsboys Foundation

The Globe archive is bursting with photos of societies, foundations, and clubs that no longer exist. This one, The Burroughs Newsboys Foundation, was founded by Harry E. Burroughs to give Boston’s newsboys life experiences that would give them a better future. The foundation building, at 10 Somerset St., offered classes in music, art, government, trades, and health. Burroughs also believed these boys needed to experience the outdoors, so with the financial help of friends, he started Agasizz Village, a camp where the boys could spend the summer at little or no cost. — Thea Breite and Lisa Tuite
