Snowflake Pin/PendantWilson A. Bentley (1865-1931), also known as "Snowflake Bentley," devoted his life to showing the beauty and variety of snowflakes. A self-educated farmer from the small town of Jericho, Vermont, he pioneered "photomicrography," the photographing of very small objects, especially snow-flakes.
In 1903, he donated a collection of 500 snowflake photographs to the Smithsonian to ensure their safety. He wrote that he was "deeply grateful for your kindly help in thus placing my collection of snow photographs beyond all possibility of loss and destruction, through fire or accident."
