GOHS TRIP TO CANYON COUNTRY
The Greater Oneonta Historical Society is partnering with Collette Tours on one of its most popular tours – an eight-day trip through Arizona and Utah’s Canyon Country in May 2020. Collette’s Colby Yeaton will provide an information session at the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main Street, on Wednesday October 2 at 6:00 PM, just before GOHS' Annual Meeting. The flight from Albany will arrive in Phoenix with the first night spent in Scottsdale. There will be time to shop in Sedona's marketplace and travel through Kaibab National Forest. Tour participants will spend a night at the South Rim of Grand Canyon, and two nights at the Lake Powell Resort. There will be two nights in Springdale, Utah, for visits to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. The final overnight stay is in Las Vegas before the return flight to Albany. Those who sign up for the tour at the presentation will receive a special discount on this fundraiser for the Greater Oneonta Historical Society. The information session is free and open to the public.
Historical Society Annual Meeting & Awards Presentation
The Greater Oneonta Historical Society (GOHS) will hold its Annual Meeting and Awards Reception on Wednesday evening October 2 at the History Center, 183 Main Street. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM with the presentation of the Hofbauer Outstanding Service Awards to Deb Bruce and Corinne Smith for their exceptional volunteer service. The award is named in memory of Eduard Hofbauer, who served on the GOHS Board of Trustees.
A native of Oneonta, Corinne Smith has served on the GOHS Board of Trustees for seven years, the last four years as president. Smith has been on the fund development and programs committees, along with the executive and nominating committees. Under her leadership, she has introduced new events, and has promoted collaboration with and engagement in the community. Her management and interpersonal skills have made GOHS a stronger organization.
Deb Bruce has provided valuable services to GOHS for almost fifteen years. Bruce has served on the Board as both an officer and a trustee, and for many years on the Collections Committee. For the past several years she has been in the critical position of GOHS' database coordinator.
The Albert E. Morris Award, named after the city of Oneonta's first mayor, is awarded to Wayne Wright in recognition of his contributions to local history. Wright, a native Oneontan, promoted and conserved Otsego County history during his 36 years at the New York State Historical Association. At NYSHA he hosted periodic meetings with the county’s historians and historical societies, and worked with Cooperstown Graduate Program students as they learned to become museum professionals. Wright is historian for the Main Street Baptist Church and has written a history of the church. He compiled a topical index of Ed Moore's volumes of In Old Oneonta. He is a past GOHS trustee and currently serves as GOHS librarian. In 2018 he received the Herbert H. Lehman Award for Distinguished Service from the New York Academy of History.
After refreshments and the presentation of the Hofbauer and Morris awards, there will be a short business meeting, including the election of trustees and officers. An information session on GOHS' Spring 2020 fundraiser trip to Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, will precede the meeting at 6:00 PM. The evening, with refreshments, is free and open to the public. For more information, contact (607) 432-0960 or info@OneontaHistory.org.
"CALL ME ISHMAEL”: CARLETON WATKINS' REMARKABLE JOURNEY
The Greater Oneonta Historical Society (GOHS) is bringing Carleton Watkins scholar Weston Naef to the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main Street, on Sunday October 6 at 3:00 PM. Naef is curator emeritus and founding curator of photographs of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. He has written several books on the history and art of photography, including the award-winning Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs with Christine Hult-Lewis (2011).
"Call me Ismael": Carleton Watkins' Remarkable Journey" is related to the History Center's current exhibition on the six men who left Oneonta in 1849 for California and the Gold Rush. Weston Naef sent GOHS the following information about his talk: “Of the six men who left Otsego County in the winter of 1849, Watkins was the best traveled and most colorful one of that group. I will discuss the scope of his travels that include several return visits to his birthplace, Oneonta. My remarks will be phrased in the context of Herman Melville's amazing novel, Moby Dick, that was being written in 1848 and 1849, just when Watkins and the others were planning their journey to California.”
The event is free and open to the public. "The Oneonta '49ers exhibition will continue through November 23. For more information, contact (607) 432-0960 or info@OneontaHistory.org.
