I got this email from Bart de Malignon last week:
Northfield native and photographer Fran Hall died on Thursday, December 2 in Boulder, Colorado. There will be a memorial service in Boulder about a week before Christmas and a service in Northfield after Christmas. Details to be announced. Fran would have celebrated his 96th birthday on December 18 and was an active photographer of nature until the end of his life.
I first heard of Fran Hall when I was working on a blog post about Henry Fisk and Clark Webster showed me his photo of Henry Fisk, taken by Fran Hall back in 1960.
- DailyCamera.com published a profile of Fran in June, 2010 titled: Fran Hall, 95-year-old photographer, has seen it all
- Maggie Lee wrote about Fran in the July, 2010 issue of the Northfield News after she got a letter from him. See An interesting life.
- U of Colorado news, June 2, 1999: Welcome To The Wonderful World Of Insects – Photos By Fran Hall
- In the book Airstream: the history of the land yacht, there are Fran Hall photos, as he was the photographer for Airstream’s 1962 Around The World Caravan. Airstream profiled Fran in their Spring 2009 issue. And Fran directed a short movie about the trip titled Trailer Around the World.
