Vernon Hansen

For those of us that lived in Hinsdale in the 60's and early 70's, Vernon Hansen was a part of the culture.  To most he was an intrusive and challenging presence.  The village tolerated his boisterous rambling and gently guided him out the door when necessary.  I am glad to have known him personally.  I spent a Summer afternoon with Vern back in the early 70's and photographed him.  These photographs are precious to me.  I am a better person for having known him.
