The fertile farmlands of the Mohawk Valley brought the first settlers to Whitestown, founded by Hugh White in 1784. Abundant water was available to service mills and to provide a means for shipping goods from the existing knitting mills, cheese factories, iron works, and lumberyards of Whitesboro, a village of Whitestown. Irish immigrants settled into Whitesboro after building the Erie Canal, while German immigrants brought their carpenter talents to build furniture, such as the famous Quigley rolltop desk. The Dutch sought out Wybo E. Wind, the Dutch baker who employed many in his bakery, and because of the large number of Welsh immigrants in Remsen, there was a big spillover into Whitesboro. Among the first things sought by those visiting the area is Whitesboro’s diverse cuisine, boasting some of the best Italian, Greek, and Lebanese dishes, all brought by immigrants. Whiteboro’s proximity to the Adirondacks allows residents to enjoy camps, summer homes, swimming, and winter activities. The rolling hills and beautiful scenery are part of the charm that still attracts people to the area today.

Utica s neighborhoods are filled with people whose passion for family, food, faith, and civic engagement are exemplary of the true American experience. Lives devoted to politics, business, sports, and scholarship have found their start, and often times their purpose, in Greater Utica. The nation s politics have been shaped by the likes of abolitionist Gerrit Smith, Congressman Roscoe Conkling, Vice Pres. James Sherman, and political pollster John Zogby. Enterprises including American Express and the Associated Press received boosts from businessmen John Butterfield and Theodore Faxton. Dick Clark hit the Utica airwaves long before American Bandstand was a household favorite, Will Smith wore a Proctor uniform before becoming a New Orleans Saint, and Arthur B. Davies learned to paint Mohawk Valley landscapes before introducing America to modernist art. Those looking to reclaim Utica s birthright as an essential American landmark include chefs Dean and Jason Nole, publisher Donna Donovan, Olympian-turned-entrepreneur Robert Esche, and the brewers of Saranac Beer, the Matt family."

Cloaked in anonymity, Frances Miriam Whitcher wrote brilliant social satire in the mid-1800s, exposing hypocrisy and pretentiousness in village society throughout the Northeast. This new book demonstrates that her sardonic, antisentimental wit represents an entirely different strain in women's writing of the time, earning her an important role in the emergence of a distinctive tradition of women's humor in America. Whitcher was the first American woman to write a highly popular series of humorous sketches in the tradition of the Yankee yarn-spinner. Whitcher's sketches were featured in Neal's Saturday Gazette and Godey's Lady's Book. Her collection of sketches, published posthumously as The Widow Bedott Papers, earned best-seller status from the date of its publication in 1855 until the end of the 1880s, when "The Widow Bedott" was played on the New York stage by Neil Burgess. Although widely read, much admired, and very influential in her own era, Whitcher has until recently been virtually forgotten in ours. Morris's study should help to rescue her writings and perhaps earn for Whitcher a new readership.

The Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography is the first comprehensive encyclopedia of world photography up to the beginning of the twentieth century. It sets out to be the standard, definitive reference work on the subject for years to come. Its coverage is global – an important ‘first’ in that authorities from all over the world have contributed their expertise and scholarship towards making this a truly comprehensive publication. The Encyclopedia presents new and ground-breaking research alongside accounts of the major established figures in the nineteenth century arena. Coverage includes all the key people, processes, equipment, movements, styles, debates and groupings which helped photography develop from being ‘a solution in search of a problem’ when first invented, to the essential communication tool, creative medium, and recorder of everyday life which it had become by the dawn of the twentieth century. The sheer breadth of coverage in the 1200 essays makes the Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography an essential reference source for academics, students, researchers and libraries worldwide.

The real-photo postcard phenomenon of the early 1900s gave rise to millions of cards depicting the now-vanished world of small-town America. Combining his skills as both a chronicler of modern America and a historian of photography, Sante shows how these postcards offer a "self-portrait of the American nation," as well as mark a crucial step in the evolution of photography, paving the way for great 1930s documentary artists, such as Walker Evans. 127 photographs.
