The Accidental Historian of Laporte, Indiana

Frank Pease was a portrait photographer for 25 years in the small town of Laporte, IN. He died in 1970. Jason Bitner from Found Magazine eventually found Pease’s collection of 18,000 images, some of which were published this year in a book called LaPorte, Indiana.
