Keepers of the Knowledge
The Stafford County Historical Society maintains a program of recognizing its members who have widely contributed to the development, identification and preservation of data, sites and events of strong historical significance.
The Keepers of the Knowledge Program recognizes individuals “whose dedication, special witness, and enduring contributions are a vital link in recording and understanding our local, regional and national history. As conceived by Stephen A. Gambaro and based on American Indian traditions, the program has honored community members who seek knowledge and preserve our common history by passing it on to successive generations. Keepers continue to serve as consultants and advisers to the Stafford County Historical Society and its education and preservation activities. Each Keeper is recognized with a photographic portrait. The photographs, presently on display in the Stafford Hospital Center’s education wing, will ultimately be donated to the Stafford Museum and Cultural Center’s collection.
