This website is named for Stanley "Buster" Major and Helen Smolinski (above) who were married in 1929 in Solvay, New York. The website was a retirement gift from Jeffrey Major of Smithfield, Rhode Island, to his father, Jack, who'd been the managing editor of the features department at the Providence Journal.
