Frank Hutt, 77, Historian, Dies
Taunton, Nov. 30 The funeral of Frank Walcott Hutt, 77, naturalist and historian of 51 Grant Street, who died Friday afternoon at Morton Hospital, will be held without formal services Monday, Cremation will be at Forest Hill Cemetery.
The former newspaperman and author of a three-volume history of Bristol county requested in his will that no clergymen, flowers of formal service be associated with his funeral.
Mr. Hutt, who left his home and 400 acres of land on Staples Street to the city, to be known as the Emmie F.N. Hutt Memorial Forest, was born in Gloucester. He attended Trinity College and Boston University. He has been a reporter at different times on the Lynn Daily Item, the New Bedford Standard-Times and the Taunton Gazette. He was once employed as secretary to William Ordway Partridge, sculptor, and left to write on historical subjects.

NOTE: looking up the forest in his wife’s name it is Emma N.F. Hutt Forest. In Frank’s obit it said Emmie F.N. Hutt Memorial Forest. I am not sure why the difference in her initials.
