Thurston, Frank A., son of Anthony and Ann M. (Whipple) Thurston, was born in Fall River, March 16, 1864. He was educated in the common and high schools of his native place and at the Morey & Goff English Classical School, Providence, R. I., from which he was graduated in 1884. Soon after graduation he went into the em ploy of the street department as a laborer, and then entered the office as junior clerk and time keeper, later being made chief clerk and then assistant superintendent, in which capacity he remained until the death of his father in September, 1894, when he was appointed superintendent of the department. It is remarkable that three generations of Thurstons have held this office continuously, no matter what political party was in power. The administration of Mr. Thurston, like that of his father, Anthony Thurston, and his grandfather, Edward Thurston, has been characterized by absolute impartiality and business like methods He requires perfect discipline and honest work from each employee of the department, be he a common laborer, a foreman, or a clerk. Mr. Thurston is a member of Fall River Lodge No. 219, I. O. O. F. In September, 1892, he married Daisy E., daughter of Jason and Mary Bowles of Plattsburgh, N. Y.
