February's Exhibit

The William S. Bullard
Photographic Collection
Curated by Frank Morrill

The Jacob Edwards Library is pleased to present the unique photographic collection of William S. Bullard. Some of the collection has been exhibited previously at the Worcester Art Museum, however, the images on display have not previously been on view.

Please join us in welcoming February's Featured Exhibitor, Frank Morrill. 

You are invited to join us for the reception on Thursday, February 7, at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of Jacob Edwards Library. All welcome!

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.

Later in the month, there will be a presentation from Frank Morrill and Dr. Janette Greenwood, of Clark University who will discuss the historical impact of this amazing collection.
