The Archive:

 

The photographs of Nick DeWolf (that's Nick in the buddy icon - www.flickr.com/photos/dboo/3357245378).

 

Born in Philadelphia, later a Bostonian and later still a "hall of fame", fountain-designing Aspenite, Nick DeWolf was a unique, inspiring, engaging and curious soul. Co-founder of Boston's Teradyne Corporation, Nick was also a lifelong, extremely passionate and talented photographer, as evidenced by the images presented here at Flickr.

 

As a photographer, Nick was ever ready and ever present, leaving behind many thousands of pre-digital images, dating well back into the 1950's. He carried a camera with him at all times, usually a family of cameras. If you knew Nick, you got used to this ... eventually, he'd be pointing his camera at you.

 

I (the Archivist) am working to post Nick's images in their original sets as they are scanned and processed, somewhere in the order of 20-50 images a day. For those wondering about an endgame, as in "How much longer can this possibly go on?", I can only answer, "The mountain is high, the journey is long."

 

It is my hope and intent to eventually digitize every picture Nick DeWolf ever shot. It is also my hope and intent to post the images here on the web for the scattered members of the DeWolf family, and the public at large, to enjoy.

 

Nothing would have tickled Nick more.

 

So, here we go...the world through the eyes of my father-in-law, Nick DeWolf.

 

Enjoy....

Being Nick's eldest son it is surreal to see myself in these photos. It reminds me that sometimes my memory is either clouded or tainted. Thank you very much Steve for the Herculean task.

A stunning, day-by-day journey through America a half century ago. This project is simply unparalleled.

When I stumbled across this archive I started by browsing the cocktail parties. Beacon Hill in that era, as even now, was all about the parties. Imagine my delight at finding several photographs of my surprisingly stylish parents at one of parties! I also found myself (at 12 yrs) working on the Hill House project. My brother and father were on the Tuckermans trip. Mom is the maid with the goat cart at the Pete Fanueil School playground. This body of work is an unexpected treasure and I look forward to more to come. Thank you for your dedication to Nick's art. James A. Norton

This archival work is as important as it is beautiful. Every time I take a look I find something I can't believe the world almost missed. This kind of project is the very reason for Flickr.

I've been following dboo's project for a few months. He is doing all of us a huge favor by making this slice of life public. Thank you for this gift of history, Steve!
