A school teacher in rural Maryland he developed multiple schlerosis that gradually reduced his mobility. Turning to photography he built up a large collection of glass negatives capturing the school children, parades, rural events, landscapes and personalities of the region during the period from 1905 and his death in 1927. Although ten of thousands of his glass negatives were destroyed over the years almost twenty eight hundred survived and have been scanned and are online through the Garrett County Historical Society Museum, 107 South Second Street, Oakland, MD 21550.
