Event Time and Date

Saturday, April 26 2014, 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

On Saturday April 26 at 2:00 PM, the Greater Oneonta Historical Society (GOHS) will present "Esther's Scrapbooks", a program about the three scrapbooks of Esther Bartow Bresee that are in the GOHS collection. The presentation is by SUNY Oneonta student Natalie Newton of Canandaigua, a double major in anthropology and history. The scrapbooks date from about 1926 to 1940, covering Bartow Bresee's years at Oneonta High School and the Oneonta Normal School as well as her travels and other leisure activities after her 1931 graduate from college. Newton will also speak on the value of scrapbooks as historical resources. Newton said, "I really enjoyed this project, it's interesting looking at these scrapbooks, seeing Oneonta through Esther's eyes and then walking outside and seeing it again through mine."  Newton's research and presentation are part of a collaborative effort called "Oneonta in 100 Objects". Hartwick College and SUNY Oneonta students choose an object or group of related objects in the GOHS collection, enroll in an indepedent study course in their institution, research the object(s), then present the results of their research as a presentation and/or exhibit. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact 432-0960 or info@OneontaHistory.org<mailto:info@OneontaHistory.org>.  Written by GOHS executive director Bob Brzozowski (431-9509, director@OneontaHistory.org).
