Waldo Lincoln, Resident, 1893, died April 7, 1933, in the fullness of years, in the old Governor Lincoln Mansion at 49 Elm Street, Worcester, where he had spent the greater part of his life. He was another of the leading citizens of Worcester and was well known as an antiquarian and genealogist. After a year at the Lawrence Scientific School in Cambridge, his early years were spent in the metal business. When sixty years of age he retired from business, and thereafter published a genealogy of the Waldo family. He served as president of the American Antiquarian Society, and for ten years he was treasurer of Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Many years ago, Mr. Horace Everett Ware left a sum of money to the Society for the erection of a suitable memorial to the Governor and Company of Massachusetts Bay. Your Council felt that, now that the tumult and shouting of the Tercentenary had died away, we might properly expend this fund according to the directions of the donor. With the permission of the First Church in Boston, it was decided to erect in their meeting-house a memorial arch and tablet, balancing the Hutchinson memorial doorway which the Society had erected in the same meeting-house fifteen years ago. The archway, beautifully designed by our associate R. Clipston Sturgis, in perpendicular Gothic style, and carved out in American walnut wood, has worked into it characteristic fruits and flora of New England, together with the arms of Winthrop, Johnson, Dudley, Humphrey, Pynchon, and Saltonstall. The arch encloses a tablet, on which is the inscription: 2b1af7f3a8
