The Warren County chapter in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848).  Relative to many upstate counties, Warren County was generously treated by the authors.  There are five pages specific to Warren County, including a county map, more than many upstate counties received in these early years.  In addition to those five pages, we have also included the section of Mather & Brockett about land grants and patents -- underlying the counties -- in the state.  This summary is an important part of Warren County's historical record.  5++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.00.

Red and Black for 1936 -- The Yearbook of Glens Falls High School, Glens Falls, New York.  High school yearbooks capture moments in time or at least the best of them do.  This one, soft cover and limited size included, give us a glimpse of Glens Falls at around the midpoint of the Great Depression, reflecting a way of life unlike that of a decade earlier, and quite unlike the decades that would follow.  There seems to be a theme recurring in the book that suggests the value of material success, and under the economic circumstances of those years we can find no fault with that.  Against this background, the length of the advertising section of this yearbook is noteworthy.  One would suspect that among the advertisers, reasonably few were still extant in another ten years.  By contemporary standards, there are relatively few activities and these fall generally into the athletic (almost entirely for boys) and academic (relatively gender neutral).  The Glens Falls High School Hockey Team played only a three game schedule, and given the locale, that they had a hockey team is not surprising. Interestingly, Glens Falls High School also fielded a swim team.  The seniors are listed, with most having a smallish photo.  Several seniors did not have photographs.  For the juniors, three photographs, each including roughly a third of the class, along with a full list of class members, appears, while the sophomores got no pictures at all, but did get a full list of class members.  No freshman class is evident.  104+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $4.00.
