The Snowflake Man

Have you ever tried to find two snowflakes exactly alike? If you have, you know it’s impossible. No two snowflakes are ever identical. The reason for this is a mystery that excited Wilson Bentley enough to dedicate his life to “saving” every snowflake he could.

Born on February 9, 1865 in Jericho, Vermont, Wilson Bentley loved snow. He was fascinated by the complex designs of each snowflake. If only he could find a way to save them so that others could enjoy their beauty, too. He tried drawing snowflakes but they always melted before he finished. When he was 17, his parents took all their savings to buy him a special camera with a microscope. Now he could photograph snowflakes!

Willie spent a whole winter in a shed in his backyard, catching snowflakes on a black tray. His first tries at photographing snow all ended in failure. He experimented that winter and the next, before finally succeeding.

Now everyone could see the beauty of each snow crystal, unique designs that would never happen again. When he was sixty-four, his book, Snow Crystals, was published. Wilson Bentley, the Snowflake Man, had given a great gift to the world.

In Willie’s hometown of Jericho, Vermont, you can still read the monument dedicated to “Snowflake” Bentley, Jericho’s world famous snowflake authority
What did Willie dedicate his life to?
What method failed to “save” the snowflakes?
