About the Author

The gathering of images and historical research was a collaborative effort by three diverse talents. Patricia L. Stephens is a Berea College student and journalist who discovered many of these rarely seen images while doing research work at the Berea College Archives. Howard Carlberg is a photographer and prominent Berea resident who has coordinated many festivals, public dances, and craft workshops in Berea. Marvin Carlberg is a historian and collector of postcards, photographs, and other vintage memorabilia. This is his second book with Arcadia Publishing.
