The “Catnip Man” of Gloucester



IMG_8404I saw  this photo at Otto Tolvanen Photos of Beverly.  Otto said he remembers the Catnip Man roaming the streets of Beverly, but thought he was originally from Gloucester.  Further research showed that the Catnip Man was featured in a post in GoodMorningGloucester in 2013 by E.J. Lefavour

“According to Stephen P. Hall of Beverly, the Capnip Man’s real name was William Albert Joseph Patrick Swayne Luscomb.  Bill lived the last years of his life in a rooming house at 32 Broadway Street in Beverly, and was a familiar sight on Cabot Street in the late 1950s until his death in 1962.”

The Catnip Man photos are being sold by Otto Tolvanen of Beverly.
