GHS Newsletter 14.4 Winter 2012
Economically, we cannot afford to mail the newsletter as a full-color publication, so the physical version is simply black and white. Not so the electronic version—you can see the modern photographs in glorious color (see especially picture of the lost fossil).
We have the first of a series of articles on Fred Murphy from the Mirror Recorder; a testimonial to Helen Wyckoff Carson by Kristen Wyckoff; two articles from high school juniors (Prattsville Devastated by Irene by Sarah Armlin, and the Construction of the Blenheim Bridge by Hannah Laraway); A period article about the 1916 film shot in Gilboa are environs (Caprice of the Mountains); and a sequence of stories on peddlars (From Mountain Men to Ragmen and Other Peddlers, Paige Croswell Stilwell, Sr., and Nate Simon).
There is also a long article from the C. S. Best House and Medical Exhibit on the files they have in archives on Doctor Duncan Leonard, and the Schoharie Reservoir series focuses on Controlling the Schoharie Creek while the dam is being erected.
They Lived in These Hills tells of two church builders (Darius
& Stephen Hitchcock) and 2 public servants (Gene Hallock and Catherine Mattice), and there are short articles on the Buses in Gilboa, Coby Tech, and the Medallions on the Gatehouse.
