Forgotten Wellesley Citizens: Capt. Jack Early

Within a period of only four years, from 1917 until his untimely death in 1921 at the age of 25, Early served his country in the battlefields and trenches of the Champagne region of France, returned home to establish the Wellesley Post of the American Legion, and was elected the Town’s youngest-ever Selectman.
