This is an interactive presentation of 19th Century 3-D photographs of several religious campgrounds along the St. Lawrence River as well as those at Chautauqua and Wesleyan Grove on Martha’s Vineyard. The presentation will include a brief history of stereography and the viewing of many 3-D images from the 1900s. A number of stereoview reproductions and viewers will be available so the participants will have an opportunity to view some images in 3-D.

His writings have appeared in Adirondack Life, the Watertown Daily Times, at “Thousand Island Life.com” (i.e.: www.thousandislandlife.com), and on North Country Public Radio.
