About this Event
19 Utica Street, Hamilton, NY 13346, USA
This presentation offers a partial story of the two women, who, in 1925, built an Adirondack “camp” which they shared for nearly four decades. It is an unfinished story in that we continue to search to learn more about the lives of Adelaide Breckenridge and Katharine Whited and their commitment to create a “cabin to belong to the land.” Too often the stories of women forging places in the Adirondacks remain unknown, untold. Placed also within the context of the ‘idea’ of the Adirondack camp, this presentation will likely raise more questions than answers about the lives of two women who thrived in the wildness, beauty, and community of the central Adirondack landscape.
Presenter: Ellen Percy Kraly is Professor of Geography and Environmental Studies Emerita at Colgate University. She began teaching at Colgate in 1984 and has served as director of the Upstate Institute, Director of the Environmental Studies Program, and Interim Provost.
