Steve Damon
I found out today that Steve Damon, born in Malden , MA and longtime resident of Tamworth, has passed away. Steve has always been such an enthusiastic user and supporter of Cook Memorial Library that I just can’t imagine the library without his cheery face coming in the door.
He and his wife Ginny, both contributed to the local history collections. Steve has been creating “Facebooks” for 40 years or more – the 35 notebooks of his photographic portraits of Tamworth residents that he gave to the library some years ago has given pleasure to a great many people. His scrapbooks (collections of memorabilia about Tamworth and Mount Washington Valley events) have served on many occasions as important reference documents for local history researchers.

The sign next to his photo in the Ulitz Genealogy & History Center says: “Steve Damon: Photographer, Author, Inventor, Editor, Collector, Interpreter, Neighbor, Historian, Raconteur, Comedian, Explorer”

Steve’s kindness, sense of humor and warmth will be sorely missed by the library community, most especially the staff.

    Thank you all for your kind words and warm thoughts. Where ever he is now I’m quite sure he misses you all as you do him. As Einstein said, “E=MC squared”. Meaning energy and matter can never be destroyed. Only converted into other forms of both. Your memories are proof of that.
