Frederick Hastings Rindge (1857-1905)
Frederick Rindge is most well-known for his philanthropic efforts for his home town of Cambridge, MA and Harvard University. While not a graduate of Harvard, he was forced to leave school due to poor health; Mr. Rindge made it his life’s work to donate to those less fortunate than himself. He is responsible for funding the Cambridge City Hall, a Manual Training School (now Cambridge Rindge and Latin School) and a bulk of the costs for the Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church. Mr. Rindge is commemorated throughout the square in places such as Rindge Avenue and the Rindge Towers.
