State University of New York at Canton is not a complicated story, but it is an interesting and compelling one. This centennial edition tells the story as it has never been told before, chronicling the changes, adaptations, and growth leading up to today's college, which offers two-and four-year degree programs to some 2,500 students. It is all
here, the buildings and settings--from the original Farmhouse on outer Park Street to the present hillside location north of Canton--faculty and students, sports and events, and classroom activities that, together, have made the Canton college experience what it has been for the past
About the Author
Author Douglas Welch, a published writer and professional
librarian, has worked for 13 years at SUNY Canton's
Southworth Library. A resident of the North Country since
1980, he notes that the college is very much a product of the region, reflecting both the rugged landscape and the hardy character of its residents. He has compiled State University of New York at Canton using nearly 200 photographs, many of which appear in print for the first time. This stirring tribute is sure to appeal to all North Country residents, as well as alumni and the rest of the college community.
