Born on Middle Street, business theorist and investor Roger Babson hired unemployed stone cutters to inscribe more than two-dozen boulders during the Depression. He hoped that words such as â€śindustry,â€ť â€śinitiative,â€ť and â€śintegrityâ€ť would inspire people as they walked through Dogtown Common in the center of Cape Ann. He founded three colleges as well as Gloucesterâ€™s Isabel Memorial Library.
