Biography of Chester Lincoln Somers

Chester Lincoln Somers was born August 6, 1917, at Cambridge, Massachusetts. His mother was descended from an old New England family, as well as Scottish ancestors who fought at Culloden. His father's ancestors came to American in the early 18th century from Germany. They settled in or around Philadelphia, but in 1766 moved with other German families to the Petitcodiac River region in New Brunswick, where they settled. Somers was educated in the public schools, graduating from Somerville High School in 1937. Unable to attend college because of financial circumstances at the time, he was hired as a clerk with the First National Bank of Boston. He remained there until inducted into Federal service with the National Guard.

While attending high school, he served in the United States Naval Reserve from 1934 through 1938, going to sea on the battleship U.S.S. Arkansas and destroyer U.S.S. J. Fred Talbott. At the end of his enlistment, he did not rejoin because of chronic seasickness.

On July 26, 1940, at the age of 22, Somers enlisted in Company B, 101st Engineers, the local National Guard Unit in Somerville, Massachusetts. This unit traced its lineage back to Colonial days. He was inducted into Federal Service, United States Army, on January 16, 1941 as a corporal. The 101st Engineer Regiments was then a part of the 26th (YD) Division. He served subsequently with the following units: Student Co. No. 1, Engr. Student Prov. Bn., Ft. Belvoir, VA; Hq. & Hq. Co., VI Army Corps, Providence, RI; OCS, Student Co. B, 1st Engr. Sch. Regt., Ft. Belvoir, VA; Co Y, 3rd Engr. Sch. Regt., Ft. Belvoir, VA; 61st Engr. (C) Bn., Atlantic Beach, FL; 271st Engr. (C) Bn., 71st Division, Camp Carson, CO; 1141st Engr. Combat Group, Camp McCoy, WI; and 1130th Engr. Combat Group, Camp Gruber, Oklahoma. Somers was discharged as a Master Sergeant on November 4, 1944 for disability from Ft. Devens, Massachusetts.

Following his discharge he returned to the employ of the First National Bank, remaining with them until his graduation from college. During these four years, he worked during the Nite-Twilight shift (4 to 11pm) processing checks on an IBM machine. He attended classes mornings and early afternoon. On June 14, 1953 he received his BSEd degree from Tufts College. He also received an M.A. in administration from Tufts University in 1959 and in 1971 a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study from the University of Massachusetts.

From 1954 through 1955, he taught in the Beverly public schools at the Junior High School level and from 1957 to 1961 served as a Supervising Principal in several school systems until elected Elementary Supervisor in West Springfield. He remained in that system until his appointment as Superintendent of Schools in Winchendon, Massachusetts in 1966. In 1968, he accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent of Schools in Lowell, where he had charge of all elementary education. Later, he was placed in charge of all school personnel, remaining in that capacity until his retirement in August of 1981.

Following his retirement, he and his wife Harriet, toured twelve European countries in 1983, and in 1984, England and Scotland. Somers had four children, Susan, Joane, Karen, and a son, Craig.

Description of Contents

The Chester L. Somers Submarine Collection - Vertical File, comprising 21.75 linear feet of documentation, spans from 1892 to 2003. The collection focuses on the history of submarines and submarine warfare, with a particular emphasis on American submarines, including files on specific submarines, submarine accidents, individual nations' submarine fleets, weapons systems, components, and notable individuals related to submarine development.

Included in the collection are newspaper clippings, photographs, periodicals, commissioning programs, brochures, pamphlets, and ephemera.

The Vertical File is organized into nine series, largely by topic. Series 1: General Submarine File consists of documentation on a multitude of topics related to the development and history of submarines, including materials on specific weapons systems, defensive systems, submarine components, international submarine fleets, and the biographies of notable individuals, as well as films, literature, and poetry pertaining to submarines and submariners. Series 2: Submarine Accidents and Series 3: Submarine Disasters pertain to various American and international submarine accidents and losses. Series 4: Conventional Submarines and Series 5: Nuclear Submarines focus exclusively on United States Navy submarines, with files on individual ships spanning from U.S.S. Holland to the Los Angeles Class attack submarines and Ohio Class ballistic missile submarines. Series 6: British Submarines offers documentation on conventional and nuclear submarines in the Royal Navy, with an emphasis on the English nuclear fleet. Series 7: Early American Submarines pertains to two specific submarines built by Simon Lake and one by John Holland. Documentation on specific bathyscaphes and other deep sea submersibles is found in Series 8: Deep Submersibles. The final series, Series 9: Publications, consists predominately of runs of two German publications, Schaltung-Kuste and Marine Rundshau, as well as miscellaneous issues of English language submarine publications and manuals.
