Editor’s Note


Our Winter/Spring issue of Newport History presents a combination of visual and intellectual delights. In her article, “A Web of Commemoration: Mary Clark Sturtevant and the Berkeley Memorial Chapel, 1881-1934,” Sara A. Butler deftly tells a family history that intertwines with the founding of St Columba’s, the Berkeley Memorial Chapel, in Middletown. Our second article, “Behind the Camera,” celebrates the Newport Historical Society’s acquisition of a significant treasure trove of twentieth-century photographs taken by John T. Hopf, a Newport man who chronicled his native town for some seven decades.
