The Green-Wood Cemetery Blog

In defiant response the idea that blogs are wedded to fast-moving news cycles and splashy gossip, it’s The Green-Wood Cemetery’s new blog.

It is dedicated to “blogging in and about The Green-Wood Cemetery and The Green-Wood Historic Fund.”

For example:

Early in 1839, Louis Daguerre offered his invention, the Daguerreotype, to the world. That invention was the birth of photography. Daguerre then dispatched his pupil, Francois Jean-Baptiste Gouraud, who was the agent for the manufacturer of equipment endorsed by Daguerre, to America to introduce photography. It was 170 years ago today that Gouraud arrived in New York City on his mission.
