Verplanck Colvin's Legacy

Stewards of the APT and guests gathered on May 30 to enjoy each others' company and a compelling presentation by

Kaleb Winters, of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), on Verplanck Colvin (1847-1920) who led the New York State Adirondack Survey from

1876 to 1900.

Mr. Winters is a land surveyor and enthusiast of his professional predecessor Colvin, surveyor and champion of the Adirondack Mountains.

The New York State Archives and the DEC displayed a number of Colvin's original field notes and maps.

Return of Newly Conserved and Digitized Erie Canal Maps of 1896

Archivists Jesse Brown and Monica Gray examine one of ten newly conserved maps, just returned to Albany from conservation treatment by the Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts in Philadelphia, and digitization by Innovative Document Imaging in New Brunswick, NJ.

Officially called "Sectional maps of the Erie, Champlain, and Oswego Canals," NYSA Series B0253 is colloquially known as the "Schillner Maps," named in honor of the State Surveyor and Engineer who surveyed these Canals and created the set of 71 massive and intricate hand-ruled maps.
