The Blackstone Valley Historical Society is deeply saddened by the loss of our mentor and dear friend, Albert Klyberg.
In the words of C. Morgan Grefe, Director of the RI Historical Society:
“There are people in this world who change the way we think about a place. Al Klyberg was one of those people. He came to Rhode Island with a passion for history, and not just any history, but the history of every single person. And he committed his life to sharing that history with everyone.
He had a beautiful vision of the role that history should play in our lives, and I am honored to have known and worked with him. He continued to shape the RIHS every day, and I – we all – are grateful.
Thank you, Al, for your service, your passion, and your dedication. You made history, and you are forever part of us. You are missed so very much already.”
