- Lawrence N. Larsen, engineer devoted to Winthrop youth - Boston Globe, Aug. 23, 1993
   Lawrence N. Larsen (1934-1993) was involved with the Winthrop Little League and youth hockey program for more than 30 years. He was a director and cofounder of the hockey program, and before the town built a skating rink, he provided a place to ice skate by flooding the town tennis courts.
    He was born in Somerville, and graduated in 1934 from Somerville High School, where he was captain of the hockey team. He graduated from Massachusetts Maritime Academy with an engineering degree in 1937. During World War II, Mr. Larsen served with the Navy aboard the USS Swanee, which sustained heavy damage by a kamikaze attack that killed more than 200 of his shipmates. The survivors of the attack were given the Presidential Unit Citation. Mr. Larsen received a total of eight star citations for his service in the Pacific.
