The Author: Jim Shulman
Pittsfield native, Jim Shulman,
loved growing up in the Berkshires in the 1950s and 1960s
and has been an amateur local historian and ephemera
collector since then. Both volumes are one of Jim’s
contributions to the Berkshire Carousel project that
he and his wife, Jackie, founded.
The goal of the project is to train volunteers on how to
carve and paint carousel figures and build a carousel
in the Berkshires. It is a grassroots effort that has given
participants a sense of pride in their community
and an opportunity to create memories for
future generations, much like the ones in this book.
All income from the books goes to Berkshire Carousel,
a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
