I'm thrilled to present to you the following profile on Fred Herrick and Jeanne Mellin

After a wonderful interview with them both this past winter, I've had the exciting opportunity of trying to bring their story to "life". 

If this is your first time joining us, you can start with The early years with Fred Herrick...which will lead you through the entire progression - all three installments.

* Please read this important note.  To best appreciate what you're about to view you'll want to remember your internet connection when selecting the Audio clips.  If you use a modem and phone line to access the internet, you'll want to select "Dial Up" as the "High Speed" files will take too long to reasonably view.  Unfortunately the "Dial Up" files will be small, and not easily viewed, but you can enjoy the sound by turning on/up your speakers.

Please respect that the Many of the photos used are the property of the Herrick family, and any reproduction should be only after receiving permission to download the files.

Should you have any questions, please email me at and I'll be happy to assist.
