"Wallace Nutting, a congregational minister turned photographer, antiquarian, and entrepreneur, played a profound role in the creation of a historical worldview in the state of Connecticut in the early 20th century.
Nutting, a native of central Massachusetts, attended Phillips Exeter Academy and Harvard before matriculating at the Hartford Theological Seminary and Union Theological Seminary. Giving up the pulpit for health reasons in 1904, the erstwhile minister turned to his hobby of photography to earn a living. He settled in Southbury in 1906, purchased a house that he christened “Nuttinghame” and began to expand his photography business into an interconnected series of historically-themed products and experiences that fueled the Colonial Revival in America. Wallace Nutting photographs, or “Nuttings,” as they came to be called, could be had in a number of sizes, from very small 2-by-3-inch prints to large 20-by-30-inch prints.
Nutting’s stature increased with the publication of the States Beautiful series of travel books in the 1920s. A catchall of the minister’s musings and photographs, the States Beautiful books helped define New England and other worthy states.
Nutting died in Massachusetts in 1941 and is buried in Maine. The photographs he popularized are widely collected, and the furniture has value and an enthusiastic market among collectors."
