George Bluh's work as a teacher often assisted him in collecting information about Eastern European settlement in this part of the Connecticut River Valley. Conversations opened up when it became known that he had taught a family member at Frontier Regional High School or Greenfield Community College. The rapport that resulted allowed him to photograph the at-first-reluctant Mitch Mieczkowski, who, on a later visit from George Bluh, proudly shows this earlier photograph.
