In the early 1970s a <br />Harvard student doing a research project stopped in to inform the Storers that the design of the house was attributed to the <br />Boston architectural firm of Hartwell & Richardson. The partnership was established in 1881 by Henry Walker Hartwell (1833- <br />1919) and William Cummings Richardson (1854-1935). The attribution has not been verified. <br />James Storer (1927-2016) was the director of the Sylvania Research Lab. He died in 2016 and Viola Storer (1927-2017) the <br />following year. The property was purchased by Thomas Cataldo in 2022. The land and house have been subdivided into ten <br />lots on a new street named Linc Cole Lane. Lincoln P. Cole (1918-1999) was a Lexington town selectman, moderator and <br />served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. <br />BIBLIOGRAPHY and/or REFERENCES <br />Boston Globe, various dates. <br /> <br />Gauvreau, Paul F. “Ferd.
