Mildred 'Mil' Duggan, age 102, born in Maynard on September 1, 1912, is recognized as Maynard's oldest resident, and as such, holder of the Boston Post Cane. In an interview conducted on May 18th, Mildred, with her niece Ellen Duggan occasionally chiming in to add to oft recounted family stories, told about back when there was still a trolley running through Maynard, when farmers from the south side of Maynard sold fresh vegetables and eggs off horse-pulled wagons, and when the mill was running around-the-clock shifts during World War II making blankets and cloth for Army uniforms.
