Randy Trabold was the chief photographer for the North Adams Transcript from 1935 until he retired in 1979. Randy Trabold's Northern Berkshire County documents his formidable capacity to record the pulse of the northern Berkshire area-from tragedy to laughter and from the bizarre to the incredibly beautiful. While the book features familiar landmarks, such as North Adams, Williamstown, the Mohawk Trail, and Mount Greylock, it also takes a tour of the region's beautiful landscape, revisits the Fall Foliage Festival, and explores the frustrations and humor of Berkshire winters.
About the Author
Randy Trabold's Northern Berkshire County grew from a series of fine and performing arts classes conducted by Dr. Tony Gengarelly, professor of art history and museum studies at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. Drawing from a collection of more than six thousand news photographs in the college library archives and the personal collection of Ida Trabold, students selected and researched images and assembled Randy Trabold's Northern Berkshire County under Gengarelly's direction. Gengarelly has published widely and has been a guest curator at the Clark Art Institute and the Williams College Museum of Art.
