IIRC, Ed was in town for the WLLC thing and ended up in an interview
with Carole Cowan, President of Middlesex Community College. There was
some comment about the city of Lowell doing, or not doing to honor Ed.
The discussion got around to what would be a fitting monument and Ed
made an off-the-cuff comment about having a park bench named in his
honor. At this point, Dr. Cowan piped up that if that was what he
wanted, she could get it done.
I don't know whether or not the old studio location is a coincidence or
not, but the bench is where it is because of MCC and Dr. Cowan.
Note that some of us at the college were of the opinion that the whole
thing was a silly piece of grandstanding by the president, but being
politically connected in Lowell, she usually got what she wanted.
