From the Galen Historical Society’s Blockhouse Bulletin

April 2009

Five area authors will share their experiences of writing about local history
at April’s quarterly meeting of the Galen Historical Society. On hand will be
Bob Mead, author of Howland’s Island History; Charles Jackson, who penned
an autobiographical account of the experiences of a migrant farmhand in
More Than One Journey; Wayne Morrison, whose definitive History of Clyde,
New York
has been an invaluable historical resource for Galen residents
for more than fifty years; Pat Morrison, who recently published For Wood & Water,
an account of the stop of Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural train in 1861;
and Carol Bailey, who has written Childhood Memories and The Centennial
History of the Wayne County Pomona Grange

The quarterly meeting will be Monday, April 27,
following a brief 6:30 business meeting.
