Flowers left for Harry Thayer
Thayer was born in Pembroke, Massachusetts, in 1869, and attended public schools in Hanover, Massachusetts. He learned the leather trade, and founded the Thayer-Ross Company. He was president of the New England Shoe and Leather Association from 1916 to 1921, and of the Tanners' Council of the United States in 1920 and 1921. Thayer - a Republican - ran for a Massachusetts House seat in 1924, easily besting his Democratic opponent. His career in Congress was brief, however. In 1926, Thayer died in Wakefield, Massachusetts.
