History
Negatives in 2020.7 were taken by Holland Sentinel photographers. We continue to search the Sentinel for these images, hoping to identify the people and places shown in the collection. This collection was a gift to the Holland Museum from Randy Vande Water at some point between 1988 and 2002.

The image shown in this record was taken by Roger Snow, journalist and photographer for the Holland Sentinel. Roger A. Snow was born on 12-3-1934 in Zeeland, MI to Raymond and Evelyn Snow. Roger graduated from Zeeland High, the University of Michigan (1959) and Hope College (1963). He married Jean Holmen in Holland, MI on 6-22-1963. Roger worked for the Sentinel from about 1960 to 1966. He passed away on 1-25-2011 in Indiana.
