Hats off to Peter Wolf Photo-Graphics/Wolf Multimedia Studio. The Jericho based Multimedia Studio has been presented with a Silver AXIEM ("Absolute Excellence in Electronic Media") Award for the production of the Wilson Bentley Digital Archives (Volume 1) CD-ROM. The national award was given in the educational interactive media category. The Bentley CD-ROM competed against more than 1300 submissions from all 50 states to capture this prestigious award. Peter has spent countless hours compiling thousands of Bentley images and documents, and transferring them to a digital format. Besides the archival benefits of the program, Peter also created a wonderful educational (and fun) interactive biography of Bentley's life and work. Visit the "Snowflake" Bentley Exhibit at the Old Red Mill, in Jericho, to take a test run of the program at the newly completed, touch screen kiosk . It has quickly become a favorite with tourists and locals alike.

Congratulations Peter, GREAT JOB!!!!!!

Ray Miglionico -Archivist for the Jericho Historical Society


Production Team

The Jericho Historical Society, with help from the production team of Peter Wolf Photo-Graphics and Vermont Snowflakes (all Jericho-based), is currently about one-fifth of the way through the task of digitally archiving the Wilson Bentley collections.

Whether it's a large multi-collection museum or a small historical society, digital archiving is an important way to preserve historical images and documents. Entire collections can be published on a single CD-ROM for storage and presentation. This decreases the need to handle original photographs and documents and allows archivists to safely preserve collections for future generations. Your support will help us achieve the goal of digitally preserving the Society's Bentley collection.

This project draws from and greatly extends the Jericho Historical Society's ongoing effort to locate and consolidate existing Bentley collections throughout the United States.
