Roaldus Richmond

(c. 1910 - c. 1986)

During the Great Depression, novelist Mari Tomasi and Roaldus Richmond—who also wrote pulp fiction under the pseudonym Roe Richmond—wandered around Barre, Vermont, collecting stories for the Works Progress Administration, mostly about the miners and immigrants working in the area. Fifty-five of their 120 interviews were collected in the book Men Against Granite in 2004. A year later, a play called Stone based on their work premiered in Montpelier.
