Leslie A. Campbell, 1925 - 2020
Many of us have lost a good friend. For the local photographic community, it is the equivalent of a huge tree falling in the forest. Long-time Belchertown resident and nationally recognized photographer Les Campbell passed away Thursday, September 24th, at the age of 95. He lived many years in a home at the main entrance to Quabbin where he had started working for the Metropolitan District Commission at the age of 17, retiring 44 years later as head of the water quality laboratory. He then moved to the 24-acre homestead he belovedly called Sky Meadow, where he lived for the remainder of his life.
