In Memoriam: Maggie Bensen (1952 - 2005)

This page is dedicated to the memory of Margaret G. Bensen, a dedicated teacher, not only in gratitude for her devoted service to the education of the young, but also for her recognition of the importance to them of the study of their local history, especially the history of Barre. Without her enthusiastic support this project would not have been possible.
