About the Editor
Snapshot collector and project editor of Snapshots of a Century in African American Lives, Jennifer Cain Bohrnstedt, is a published historian. With curiosity about visual history, Jennifer’s natural enthusiasm for ‘unsung,’ unappreciated snapshots nearing loss or destruction, parallels the subjects of her narrative and documentary history books. Unrecognized heroes and heroines of history, whether their stories are told by words or by images, are those that have caught her attention over years of research. This project took several years and will also result in a hard cover 11×11 full color book in the near future, ideal for collectors, historical societies, museums, and educators. In addition, Jennifer will soon announce the repository she selected for the donation of this important collection of 20th century American history!
Jennifer holds both Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees from Indiana University, and certification in adult and vocational education from California State University, San Bernardino. She was the recipient of the Lilly Endowment State and Local Government Fellowship and was a grant recipient of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library Endowment. Her books are available online through Amazon, AuthorHouse, and Barnes & Noble and include: Views From My Schoolroom Window; While Father Is Away; and Soldiering with Sherman. Snapshots of a Century in the West, a prototype for this project, accompanied a two-month art show for the city of Palm Desert, California, and is available directly from her at SnapshotsCentury@aol.com.
Jennifer lives in the Midwest and is a seasoned speaker to audiences
of all ages and backgrounds. Book talks and signings and gallery
exhibits based on this collection are possible by contacting her at the
