William Walker, Associate Professor of History at SUNY Oneonta, will play excerpts and lead a discussion on the importance of the lake, how it has changed.
Collected by students in SUNY Oneonta’s Cooperstown Graduate Program, Community Stories presents the diverse stories of the residents of central New York State. In the 1960s, students in the Cooperstown Graduate Program began collecting oral histories, which now include over 1,800 recordings. The Food for Thought presentation pairs an important discussion with a generous, delicious luncheon.
This event will be held Wednesday, October 22, from 12:30 to 2:30 pm at the Feinmore Art Museum. The lunch and lecture fee is $22 for NYSHA members, $25 non-members. Pre-registration is required by calling (607) 547-1461.
The Fenimore Art Museum is located at 5798 State Highway 80, in Cooperstown, NY. For more information about the museum, visit www.FenimoreArtMuseum.org.
