In Remembrance of Chalfant Historian Michael Connors

Chalfant recently lost a wonderful writer and historic preservation advocate, Michael Connors. Although I did not know him personally, I was sorry to miss the chance to let him know how much I enjoyed his essay about the atom smasher that appeared in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Here is the link to it– any readers from the area will appreciate the memories here!

Also here’s a link to this article about him, which in turn has links to some of his articles. Read some, you will enjoy them and learn something new too!

He and his writing and enthusiasm for local history will be missed.
