From 1972 to 1978 John Hubbard, a reporter for the Bennington Banner, took over 2000 photographs of
Bennington residents. The collection of photographs was donated to the Bennington Museum. Most of the photographs were not identified so the Bennington Historical Society invited the community to a meeting at the
museum to help connect names with faces. Jamie Franklin, museum curator, selected 28 to the photographs for
a special exhibit at the museum and lectured on them at the March 2014 Bennington Historical Society meeting.
