Life Long Learning Program-Behind the Exhibit "Glass, Silver, and Memory": A discussion of photographer Edward H. Stone and his practice in Hamilton, circa 1890's-1950's

Tour the exhibit “Glass, Silver, & Memory: Images of community by Edward H. Stone” with the librarian duo who put it together and enjoy a brief historical presentation related to the local photographer’s life and works. Edward Stone was the official Colgate University photographer for nearly fifty years. Digitized from the university archives’ treasured collection of glass plate negatives, the images in this exhibit depict Hamilton and its surrounds at the turn of the 20th century: from the first flimsy electric streetlights in the village to an active Hamilton railyard. Explore the people, places, and moments captured -in strikingly fine detail-by a dedicated working artist as he documented our community many years ago.

Facilitators:  Emily Jeffres is the Digital History Project Manager at Colgate University. An archivist and librarian by training, her current position oversees projects related to Colgate’s Bicentennial.  Ms. Jeffres curated “Glass, Silver, & Memory.”

Emily Hutton-Hughes is a Professor Emerita in the Colgate University Libraries, where she was Head of Collection Development. She came to Colgate in 1987. In her retirement, Hutton-Hughes has been a dedicated volunteer for Colgate University Archives and Special Collections.
