Mr. Morrill will be displaying photographs from the collection of William S.
Bullard, of Worcester and North Brookfield. Between 1894 and 1917, Bullard
photographed the area's streetscapes, businesses and local residents.
The Bullard Collection consists of approximately 240 images of people of
color, mostly living in the Beaver Brook area along Park Avenue within the
first four decades of having obtained their freedom. Approximately 80
percent of the portraits were identified by Bullard in his logbook, which is
the key to the collection.
An Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, February 7 at 6:30 pm. All are
welcome, light refreshments will be served.
in the month, there will be a presentation from Frank Morrill and Dr.
Janette Greenwood, of Clark University who will discuss the historical
