This week on The Historians podcast, Bob Cudmore tells history stories which were scheduled to be delivered at a cancelled talk. Cudmore was slated to speak at a meeting of the Broadalbin-Kennyetto Historical Society. A power failure led to cancellation.
The stories include: How Sheldon Jackson, born in Minaville, New York, became an important figure in the history of Alaska; connections between the Amsterdam area and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and a look at McClumpha’s, a downtown grocery store in Amsterdam that survived for 100 years.
