A visit to the Wikipedia entries for
When this was originallywritten there were no entries for notable residents for Maynard. Zero. Zilch. Zip. Was this only an oversight? Can't history can be dredged to find those who were famous later, famous here or arrived already famous?

NOTE: After this article was published in the newspaper and posted to this blog, someone (not me) used this list to revise Maynard's Wikipedia entry. And then someone else delisted a few - the criteria appearing to be a lack of a separate Wikipedia entry on those persons or independent confirmation they they did or do live in Maynard. So as of March 2014, Maynard officially has eight "Notable residents." Stow's count was increased to seven: Henry Gardner (1731-1782), who was born and lived most of his life in Stow, was the first Receiver General-Treasurer for Massachusetts when it joined the other colonies in separating from England. Henry was the son of Reverend John Gardner, the second minister at Stow. Henry's grandson, Henry J. Gardner, was Governor of Massachusetts 1855-1858. As of 2014 Julie Berry and family have moved to California. However, Wikipedia's "Notable" criteria allows former residents to stay listed, so JB stays on the list.
