Jeanette Banker, asking about address of Richard Elton who taught here ca1950-1960s. She thought he lived in one of the former homes on Hartwell lawn, but according to directories he lived on 44 Holley. Interesting question though, I am not sure how much, if anything, we have on the houses that once stood along Utica & Monroe in what is now campus lawn by Hartwell. I think they were acquired and demolished or moved ca1950 or so. Something to look into when have a chance...

Fascinating, just got an email from someone with a scan of a document dated 1837 that they found in their deceased father's belongings! It has to do with a an effort to revive the school and diplays various signatures of trustees, including William Seymour.

Finished scanning of manuscript of Mary Smith (former Hamlin town historian) on the history of the "Triangle Tract," ie the tract that ran from LeRoy up thru Hamlin, present day towns of Hamlin, Clarkson, Sweden and part of Genesee Cty where LeRoy is. Norm Frisch took it back along with the jpgs of the individual pages, he is going to work to redo the book in publishable form, including redoing the various images. I will be helping with this as needed.
For Ginny Campbell and some others, working on 175th history of St Lukes Episcopalian in the village, burning some of the glass plate negatives on a cd, old histories from local history, scanning image of Canterbury Club from 1957 Saga etc.
