WHY THIS BOOK?
THIS BOOK exists because we think it has to. Rarely do a newspaper's home city, namesake county and that county's second largest town simultaneously observe their 200th birthdays. The Berkshire Eagle over the years has sporadically ventured into public service projects outside the scope of issuing a daily newspaper. Thus, 1961's triple Bicentennial seemed to command us to this book-publishing enterprise, our first venture into this field.
We present "Berkshire: Two Hundred Years in Pictures" as The Eagle's salute to Berkshire County, the City of Pittsfield and the Town of Great Barrington. We take pride in the book's all-Berkshire nature. It was printed in North Adams on paper made in Dalton and Housatonic; its cover drawings are by Norman Rockwell of Stockbridge, and even the title lettering is native - reproduced from an 1829 map in the first history of Berkshire County.
Any profits from the sale of this book will be given to further the preservation of Berkshire history, either through existing organizations or through a county historical society, which doesn't exist but should. It is our hope that such a society will be born by means of our book, with the result that the life and times of Berkshire, now and past, may be systematically recorded for posterity.
