John Vachon caption: Mr. and Mrs. William Gaynor, FSA (Farm Security Administration) dairy farmers, near Fairfield, Vermont, September 1941.
Jack Delano caption: The Gaynor family at dinner on their farm. Fairfield, Vermont, September 1941.
There are 67 photos of this family on the Library of Congress website. I did some quick research and discovered that Mr. Gaynor died in 1983, at the age of 76, in Northampton, Massachusetts, the city I live in. I contacted one of his sons, who lives nearby, and he was stunned. He had only one tiny photo of his mother. But the family eventually declined to be interviewed.
