      Edmund D. Steele was born in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, in 1911, the son of Charles W. and Charlotte (Lincoln) Steele.  He graduated from St. Johnsbury Academy in 1928 and attended Middlebury College in 1928-29.  Ed moved to New York City in 1930, where he worked for National City Bank for seven years; during that time he graduated in 1935 from New York University’s School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance.  He worked for the Vermont Savings Bank in its Brattleboro and Chester offices from 1938 to 1945, when he moved to St. Albans to take a job with the Franklin County Bank.  Ed worked for the bank until 1976, and he served on the board of directors until 1981.  He served on the boards of many Vermont civic, charitable and historical organizations, including St. Albans Rotary, First Congregational Church of St. Albans, the St. Albans Historical Society, the Rowland E. Robinson Memorial Association, the Auto Club of Vermont, and the Vermont Historical Society.  In 2000 the St. Albans Rotary Club named Ed its Man of the Year.  Edmund D. Steele died on March 27, 2009.

      Dorothy C. Steele was born in Bath, New Hampshire, in 1912, the daughter of George H. and Hortense (Nutter) Crowe.  She entered St. Johnsbury Academy as a sophomore in 1927 and graduated as valedictorian in 1930.  Dorothy earned a Phi Beta Kappa key at Middlebury College, from which she graduated in 1935.  She was an active member of Church Women United, Eastern Star, the First Congregational Church of St. Albans, the American Association of University Women, and the Vermont Historical Society.  She was instrumental in founding the St. Albans Historical Society and edited its newsletter for 17 years.  She also edited the Congregational Church newsletter for 13 years, wrote three chapters for Those Intriguing, Indomitable Vermont Women, and was a co-editor of St. Albans, Vermont Through the Years.  Dorothy C. Steele died on June 30, 1995.

      Ed and Dorothy married in New York City in 1935 after Dorothy’s graduation from Middlebury College.  In 60 years of married life, they shared interests in books, history, the 251 Club, and selfless service at the local, county and state levels.  They are survived  by one son, George, and his wife Dianne, and two grandsons, Jason and Jeffrey Steele.  

      The foundation of this auction is the Vermontiana collection that Ed and Dorothy assembled over many years.
