Carol Bennett began collecting stamps as a child and over years of moving around the country with her military husband developed a passion for collecting postcards and Kellogg Company memorabilia. Author of Images of America: Battle Creek and Then & Now: Battle Creek, Kurt Thornton was raised in a household that valued history and as a child helped his mother look for old postcards at garage sales, auctions, and antique markets. The authors met while working at Leila Y. Post Montgomery Hospital (named after cereal manufacturer C. W. Post's wife).
