I've found a number of websites about him (leading me to this site), and have read Blanchard's book as well as the "Man of Science, Man of God" book (can't remember the author off the top of my head right now). I'm also lucky enough to be located in Buffalo, so I'm going to the Science Museum on Monday to see their collection, and am going to Jericho next weekend. Does anyone have any other particular interesting resources that you can point me in the direction of? The more I have to draw from, the richer I hope my novel will be. (:
Thanks very much for any suggestions!

Welcome to the Bentley Board, how about posting a poem or two for us. Be sure to check the Bentley Exhibit at the Old Red Mill and Bentley's Grave site across the road from me. The Bentley CDROM is a great resource too for a complete listing of articles published by Wilson Bentley.

You could also look at the newsletter articles on this website.
Duncan Blanchard's book, which you mentioned, is the only comprehensive biography of Bentley I know of. Other than the book and the newsletter, you could post your specific questions and maybe someone can answer them.
Good luck with the novel,

I assume that his farmhouse is still standing, but privately owned? Has anyone ever been able to contact the owners to view the house at all? I was intending to drive by, but would love to see the farm more closely--I just don't want to harass the owners if they're constantly getting besieged with visitors!

The Farmhouse is still there and privately owned. I think they have an art gallery there so you may be able to check it out.
