    • BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH for JAMES E. CASHMAN:

      James Eugene Cashman was born in Quincy on May 22, 1876 and spent his first 31 years in his native city learning the contracting business from his father, John Cashman. When John won a contract to repair the Burlington breakwater in 1903, his son James, went to Vermont to oversee the job. By 1905, James was winning contracts under his own name. James settled in Burlington with his wife Ada James and their five children and set about the work of constructing many of Burlington's principal buildings and bridges, including Burlington's City Hall, Memorial Auditorium and the Winooski Bridge. After his father died in 1913, James became general manager and treasurer of Bay State Dredging & Contracting, during which time he oversaw the construction of important projects such as the Bellevue Hill water tower in West Roxbury, the high-level sewers at Needham, the Metropolitan Park Boulevard in Quincy and dredging associated with the Boston Army Supply Base. James was New England director for the Associated General Contractors of America, an organization which instituted an annual award in his name. At the time of his death on February 24, 1931, he owned the largest contracting business in Vermont.

(The sliver of building you can see on the right side of the house is James' office.)    This house was listed on the Burlington Historic Sites and Structures Survey (HSSS) from 1978. It was built around 1850, possibly for James Mitchell whose family lived there until the turn of the century. Mitchell, who worked as a tailor, was also an officer in the Green Mountain Lodge of Odd Fellows.     The house is a brick veneer oriented with a pediment and a peak fanlight facing the street. It has a stone foundation and slate roof. Its footprint remains consistent from the Presdee and Edwards map to present day. A Google street view from September 2008 shows the house as present and in much the same condition.    [Photo credit: http://www.uvm.edu/~hp206/2001-1853/elothrop/87c.html (1978)]

    The Burlington Free Press - How Cable Was Laid Across Lake Champlain - The August number of Telephone Topics, published in the interest of the employes [sic] of the New England Telephone company, contains an illustrated story of the laying of the submarine cable from Grand Isle Cumberland Head. Although an account of the feat was given in the Free Press at the time, "Telephone Topics" story will be of interest, particularly because of its details. It follows: Mrs. Montague Casey in Burlington, Vt., hung up the receiver the other day after talking to her mother, Mrs. Jackson P. Snow, in Plattsburg, N.Y., and said to her beloved husband, resting comfortably in his easy chair, his corncob pipe going like a Pittsburg [sic] blast furnace, "Montie, dear, that line was just as clear as a bell. I am going to call mamma every day after this. It is a delight to talk over such a  perfectly exquisite line." "Montie, dear" yawned and said nothing, for he saw his-next month's toll bill soaring skyward. Mrs. Carey knew she had a clear line but she didn't know who was responsible for the line; who built it, what it was for and how it happened to be so clear. We know the inside story, and we are going to give it to you for two reasons. First, because it shows that the state of Vermont division plant forces are on the job, and, second, because it is a good story. More than two miles, or to be exact, 12,000 feet, of submarine cable was laid across beautiful Lake Champlain in two hours on June 16, by a Vermont plant crew under the direction of Division Superintendent Durfee. It connected Cumberland Head on the New York side of the lake with Gordon's Landing in Vermont, and improved transmission between Burlington, Vt., and Plattsburg, N.Y., and "way stations." The Western Electric company made the cable, so it was of the best, and sent it to Burlington on a gondola car. It weighed 38 1/2 tons and, when on the enormous reel, occupied a space only about [illegible] feet squared. Just another example of Western Electric efficiency in packing. To many it was a mystery how that heavy cable would be unloaded from the car and placed on a lighter. But in Vermont they do things. They do not sit around and worry over a little thing like 33 tons of cable. Guess until Division Superintendent Durfee knew one man who could do the job and do it right. That was James E. Cashman, a contractor in Burlington, and Mr. Cashman was given the job of moving the reel. How he did it we don't know and we care less, but we do know that there wasn't a hitch in the whole job. At 9 a.m., on a beautiful June day the reel was on a lighter, and, pulled by two tugs, started from Burlington for Cumberland Head, reaching there at noon. Two hours later the cable was made fast on the New York side of the lake, and the boats headed for the shore of the Green mountain State. Foot by foot, under the watchful eye of Mr.Durfee and Mr.Cashman, the cable was laid in the waters of the lake. At 3.pm., it was all down, with one end resting on the sands at Gordon's Landing and the other on the rocky ledge on the New York shore. Cable Foreman Parker, accompanied by Cable Tester Flint, made the insulation resistance test and proved that the cable met all standard requirements, suffering no damage while being laid. Some years ago surveys were made, plans drawn, and estimates prepared to cover the proposed line, due to war conditions. The time consumed in actually laying the cable comes pretty near being a record for such a job. To lay a cable of four quads, 16 gage and one pair 19 gage, with an armor of No. 6 steel, without any trouble is a real stunt. And it was the [illegible] of cooperation that made such a stunt possible. Mr. Cashman and his team of men handled the job from start to finish in a masterly manner, and no [illegible] that a record was established [illegible] as they were back in Burlington again at nine o'clock that night, covering a distance of 44 miles in addition to laying 12,000 feet of cable within 12 hours. The Mountain Home Telephone company represented by General Manager [illegible] and Foreman of Maintenance Vincent, were on the job, while our company was represented by W.T.[illegible] division superintendent of plant, J.T. McLauchlin, engineer; George E. Patriot, division foreman, C.A. Parker, cable foreman, O.P. Flint, cable [illegible] and T.W. Hyland, wire chief of Burlington. Pole and wire work was later completed between Burlington and Gordon's Landing and between Cumberland Head and Plattsburg, shortening the distance by [illegible] miles. The Vermont force did a real job in this work and Superintendent Durfee and his force are to be complimented on their accomplishment.

    017 1925 Cashman Sewer Construction news detail
    St. Albans Daily Messenger - James E. Cashman, of Burlington, contractor awarded the building of the new sewers on streets on the west side of the city, has commenced work. Already about 60 feet of 18-inch reinforced cement concrete sewer line has been laid on lower side of the bridge on Pearl st. This work has been done by hand, but it is expected that the ditching will be in operation by next Tuesday morning and the work will advance much more rapidly. All property owners should at this time have  house services put in as far as the sidewalks at least, as the ditch in many instances is 18, 14, or 12 feet deep. The city is placing "Y's" at all vacant lots and where houses are not located on the streets the sewer is being  put in. The city in placing "Y's" is doing its part and property owners should at least bring sewer construction up to sidewalks at this time, officials say. It will be more expensive if property owners make house connections at some later date.

    017 1928 Burlington Bridge Built in 18 Weeks
    017 1928 Burlington Bridge Built in 18 Weeks
    TITLE: Burlington Bridge Built in 18 Weeks. James E. Cashman, Builder, Surprised Critics. BURLINGTON VT, Aug 4--With the dedication and opening of the new concrete two span bridge over Winooski River between Burlington and Winooski, the Army Engineers today took out the pontoon bridge, which had been the only means of direct travel between Burlington and Montreal since the floods of last November. Gov. Weeks of Vermont made the dedication address and paid high compliment to the work of the company of Engineers who, under War Department orders, came speedily to the assistance of the stricken communities when the old connecting bridge was washed away on Nov, 1927. James E. Cashman, the builder of the permanent bridge, started work on the bridge on March 17, before the ice had left the river and opened it to the public on Aug 2. Although confronted by most adverse conditions, including three floods, the contractor pushed the work with such speed that he surprised all critics who said that the bridge could not be completed within a month of the time set in the Cashman proposal. In one of the floods, a huge caisson was carried out, causing a delay in the construction. Unfavorable transportation conditions added to the builders difficulties, as deliveries of certain materials were delayed several weeks. But for this, the bridge would have been opened at least two weeks earlier. Mr. Cashman is taking a leading part in reconstruction in Vermont, as he is building 11 bridges in all, the last of which will be completed early in November. More than a million cars and a million pedestrians crossed the 400-foot pontoon bridge without a single accident, in spite of a turbulent stream with rapid rise and fall, ice jams and severe winter weather. Being a link in the main highway north and south through Vermont and to Canada, the loss of the old bridge would have proved a great embarrassment and severe economic setback to Vermont and New England had the war department not offered to serve until the new bridge was complete. The engineers, a detachment of the 1st Engineers of the family 1st Division of the Army, stationed at Fort Dupont, Delaware, will resume their military duties after nine months' interruption.

    Eugene F. Morrissey entered the construction industry after studying at the Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University. After considerable construction experience in the Rhode Island and Massachusetts area, Mr. Morrissey came to Burlington to work as an engineer for James E. Cashman, Inc., an established Burlington general contractor. G. Lawrence Wright returned to Vermont after gaining construction experience in the State of New York to join the Cashman firm as a construction superintendent. In 1934, the two joined forces to start Wright & Morrissey. The firm's success was heralded in The Burlington Free Press on April 21, 1938..."The rise of Wright & Morrissey in the Northern Vermont Construction field is a story of rapid accomplishment." In the first three years of company operations, Wright & Morrissey, Inc. had handled nearly two hundred sizeable contracts, the first which was the remodeling of Henry's Diner on Bank Street. In 1942, Wright decided to leave the firm and Morrissey became the sole owner while retaining the established and respected company name. On May 13, 1939, The Waterbury Record, reviewing Wright & Morrissey's work stated, "...their construction work will stand for the future generations to admire."

Stanton, colonel of the corps of government engineers for this district, and T.T. Howard assistant engineer, came to this city Tuesday afternoon from Boston and, in company with H.E. Warren, government inspector, and James Cashman of Boston, who was in charge of the work on the breakwater earlier in the season, were taken by the tug Pastime to the breakwater where they inspected the work of repairing which has been done there this year. The decision recently made by the inspector and Mr.Cashman, that no more work could be done on the breakwater this year because of the high water, was seconded by Colonel Stanton and it is now fully decided to postpone the work until next year. This decision leaves about 350 feet at the northern end of the breakwater which is unfinished. The tug Pastime will be taken to Shelburne harbor and put up for the winter at once.

    Vermont News - New Bridge to Cross Winooski - The contract for the erection of a reinforced concrete ridge [sic] which now crosses the Winooski river near the lime kilns and is known as the "high bridge," has been awarded to James E. Cashman. The bridge is to be 278 feet in length and 20 feet wide on the inside. The entire structure will be of cement construction and will be 76 feet above the river. This height is necessary in order to have the bridge clear the railroad track at the proper elevation, for an overhead pass is to be a part of the work. The historic old structure now spanning the river was erected at least 100 years ago and did duty until it was condemned, within a few months. Many stories are told regarding it. One is of a lone horseman who rode across the stringers on a dark night to reach the old hotel where the Fanny Allen hospital now stands. That is said to have happened about the time the War of 1812, when the bridge was torn up for repairs, unknown to the horseman, who could not see on account of the dark. The new bridge is to be a handsome affair, according to the specifications, and will be something of an attraction for sightseers, on account of its height above the river. The arch upon which it is to be supported across the river will have a span of 93 feet. Mr. Cashman will put a large force of men on the work at once, as the time set for its completion is October next.

    The steel bridge across the Winooski at the foot of Colchester Avenue was destroyed by the 1927 flood. When the flood receded, the only bridge left standing was the railroad span over the Winooski, built by an engineer named James Cashman, Jr. It was only natural, therefore, that he be commissioned to build the new Colchester Avenue bridge, shown jhere under construction in June,1928. Cashman had moved to Burlington from Boston to escape the shadow of his famous father, builder of the Cape Cod Canal. Cashman had erected the Chase warehouse on College and Champlian Streets in 108 as a warehouse for his construction projects. He is also responsible for the present City Hall, Memorial Auditorium and the YMCA. - excerpt from "Bygone Burlington: A Bicentennial Barrage of Battles, Boats, Buildings & Beings," 1976, page 51

Cashman, bridge builder, has been signally honored for spanning the raging Winooski river between Burlington, Vt., and Winooski, the only means of direct travel between Burlington and Montreal. This unheralded engineering plan is all the more wonderful when one stops to consider that work on the bridge started last March and the bridge was dedicated last week. Added to this fact there remains some difficulties that were overcome when the floods hampered and for a time stopped construction on the bridge. In one instance a huge caisson was washed away by flood. Mr. Cashman is a former resident of Quincy having been born and educated in this city. He is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Cashman, who were well known by the older folk in the West Quincy district. At the dedication exercises Gov. Weeks of Vermont who made the dedication address paid a high compliment to Mr. Cashman. The bridge builder although confronted with three floods pushed the work ahead with such rapidity to astound all critics who prophesied that the bridge would not be completed within a month of the time set by Mr. Cashman. Unfavorable transportation conditions added to the difficulties as certain important building materials were often delayed for weeks. But for this the bridge would have been opened several weeks earlier. This is not Mr. Cashman's only contribution to the reconstruction in Vermont, however, as he has undertaken to build 11 bridges, the last of which will be completed about the first of November. Mr. Cashman is modest about his achievements and has the highest words of praise for the Detachment of the 1st Engineers of the famous first Division, U.S.A, stationed at Fort Dupont, Delaware, who were pushed to the banks of the Winooski last fall when the floods devastated the district. But for these men there would have been no travel across the river during the winter and spring months. While the dedication of the new bridge was taking place the clang of hammers could be heard as the old pontoon bridge was slowly being removed. The best tribute to the work of the Engineers may be obtained from statistics when it is learned that over a million automobiles and a like number of pedestrians crossed the river on the pontoon bridge in spite of the fact that the river was a raging torrent with rapid rise and fall, ice jams, and severe winter weather.

    The Burlington Free Press - Punching is Expensive - Suit Brought against J.E. Cashman for $1,000. Adolphus M. Sawyer of 22 George street, employed by the Citizens' Coal company, Tuesday brought an action in trespass against James E. Cashman. The suit was entered in the office of the county clerk. The [illegible] damages is $1000 and J.J. Fixon became recognized as surety for the defendant, Russell W. Taft appears for the plaintiff and Brown & Hopkins for the defendant. It is alleged that on August 21, 1910, Mr. Cashman punched Mr. Sawyer violently in the nose, breaking said nose so completely that it's owner has remained "sick, sore, lame and disordered" to the present day. The quarrel arose, it is alleged, over some blocks which Mr. Cashman was removing from the yards of the [illegible] company. Mr. Sawyer objected to their removal and, it is said, the defendant swatted him without provocation. Mr. Cashman was arraigned in city court shortly after the trouble and charged $25 on a criminal charge. He will now have to face a civil suit.

    The Burlington Press - Court Reconvenes - Case of J.S. Hefflon vs. J.E. Cashman, for Rent, Taken Up. When Chittenden county court reconvened in this city Monday afternoon the case of John S. Hefflon vs. James E. Cashman, to be tried by jury, was taken up. J.J. Enright and M.G. Leary appear for Mr. Hefflon, and Theodore E. Hopkins is Mr. Cashman's attorney. The case is one of contract, the plaintiff claiming rent for a storage house on a spur of the Rutland railroad. The members of the jury drawn to hear the case are Xiste Blanchette of South Burlington, Octave Cormla of Colchester, James M. Cassidy of Hinesburg, H.H. Hayden of Bolton, L.E. Huntley of Essex, A.T. Mongeon of Colchester, Albert Marcotte of Colchester, A.G. Mott of Burlington, H.J. Metcalf of Underhill, G.V. Roberts of Essex, J.H. Safford of Jericho and M.W.Wells of Huntington. Witnesses called by the plaintiff Monday were the defendant, who testified as to taking over the building used by him for storage purposes. According to book accounts, Mr. Cashman testified that he took the place over about February 1, 1911, and had it up to March 1, 1913, about twenty-two months. It appeared in the testimony that the Texas Oil company had used the building, it being the claim of the plaintiff that the building was sublet to them by the defendant for $15 per month. Mr. Cashman testified that the Texas company did owe him four months rent at $14 per month. On cross-examination Mr. Cashman testified that the building was little better than a shed, having the ground for a floor and being of four walls constructed of rough boards with two openings. He testified that he ex-braced the building and built it a platform, the platform lessening the work of unloading and re-loading containers of gasoline. Mr. Cashman claims the he owes 22 months rent at three dollars per month, according to a verbal contract. Mr. Hefflon, when placed upon the stand, claimed that there was no agreement as to the price which should be paid for the building. After Cashman had vacated Hefflon called upon him for the rent and was told that the place was no good and that he did not suppose he would have to pay rent for it. G.B. Arnold was called. Arnold does a trucking business and claimed to have rented storehouses for other people. He claimed to know the value of the rent of the storehouse, though he testified that he had never been in it and could not remember what kind of a building it was. He stated that it was worth during the time in question from fifteen to eighteen dollars per month. On cross-examination he testified that he had not rented any storehouses during the time in question.

    The Burlington Free Press - Boat Line Discontinued - No More Service Between Vergennes and Wesport - The Victor, the double-decked screw steamer which for years has plied between Vergennes and Wesport on the Vergennes-Wesport line, will make that trip no more and with its departure the service between those two places is no more. J.E. Cashman has bought the boat and this summer will use it on the breakwater work, which will be begun soon. The Victor was for years operated under the captaincy of Captain Lewis Daniels and with his death his son, Captain M.H. Daniels, took command. The boat is 75 feet in length and can carry quite a large number of passengers besides freight. Of late the line has not been over prosperous. The boat has been used to some extent in towing barges up Otter creek, but even this business has been on the decline and the management of the boat was willing to sell this spring. Mr. Cashman has a large contract to rip-rap the breakwater. Part of this work was accomplished last year, but it will take a long time to complete the job and the boat will be needed. Thousands of tons of stone will be placed against the sides of the crib of the breakwater to prevent the sides from being forced out. These sides were beginning to show signs of the wear of the ice and water and that is the reason the rip-rapping was ordered by the government. The stone which was used last year was brought in by train from Barre and loaded on barges which took it out to the breakwater. The stone is laid under the supervision of a diver who sees that the big blocks are properly placed.
