Jim Shelley



Jim Shelley, lifelong resident of Cliffside Park, NJ, is a retired high school social science teacher and attended the Woodstock Music and Art Fair when he was 19. Jim borrowed his future father-in-law's binoculars and 35 mm camera, loaded the camera with one roll of Kodachrome, and planned on driving home on Sunday morning to bring his girlfriend (now wife) back up. That didn't happen, but he did take the pictures, sometimes through the binoculars. In 2011, he became a volunteer at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and later a docent there where he enjoys speaking to guests of all ages about the 1960s cultural revolution, its continued impact on our lives today, and how Bethel Woods Center for the Arts provides an outstanding setting for those conversations. He also writes for his own blog at http://woodstockwhisperer.info/.
