All this month the Chaffee Art Center in Rutland is presenting an exhibition of Aldo Merusi's photographs. In 1937, Merusi became a sports writer at the Rutland Herald. A natural with a camera, he quickly moved from writing stories to taking pictures. As the Herald's chief photographer for 37 years, he captured on film what it was to live in Rutland.
