Polly Darnell is a former archivist and librarian who for 20 years ran the Research Center at the Henry Sheldon Museum, which holds such a rich collection of historical records (print, manuscript, and graphic) that Middlebury, Vermont might be the best documented town in New England. She retired from archives work after almost 20 years at the Shelburne Museum up the road from Middlebury. Connecting researchers with sources that helped them tell new stories about the past was her favorite part of the job.
