He had been in poor health for several months.

Mr. Holcomb alway shad lived in Granby and since a young man had been interested in nature. Beginning his collection with specimens of sea shells, he later turned to indian lore and had amassed a wide variety of Connecticut relics and pieces from other states. The indian collection last fall was cataloged and has been loaned to the Eno Memorial soon to be opened in Simsbury.
Wild Plant Authorities


Irving Holcomb, now 76, lives on an adjoining farm and as young men the brothers devoted most of their energies to agriculture. The wild flower business developed gradually at first and came in later years to be their principal occupation. Some of the plants they cultivated on their own land. Many they secured from theproperty of neighbors who granted them the privilege of taking what they wished. Both came to be authorities on the wild plant life of Connecticut. In the last few years they had largely retired from the work.

For several terms Benton Holcomb served the town of Granby as selectman. He had also been a member of the School Board and a director of the Cossett Library in North Granby.
