Open house on his­tory project at col­lege

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

An open house for a project ti­tled “The Gotsch Pa­pers: Ex­plor­ing Our Roots” is sched­uled at Columbi­aGreene Com­mu­nity Col­lege on Sept. 30 at 3 p.m.

“The Gotsch Pa­pers” is an his­tor­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion of the so­cial, economic and cul­tural mi­lieu of the city of Hud­son in the 19th cen­tury. The find­ings will re­sult from re­search con­ducted by his­tory hon­ors stu­dents who are com­plet­ing work that was orig­i­nated by for­mer aca­demic dean Charles Gotsch in the 1970s.

Re­search for the project will be su­per­vised and fa­cil­i­tated by Nicole Chil­drose, as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor of his­tory, who 40 years later is in­spired to re­visit not only Hud­son’s roots but the col­lege’s as well.

The project is be­ing on­ducted in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Hud­son Area Pub­lic Li­brary and the col­lege li­brary. Ad­mis­sion to the open house is free. It will take place in Room 614 of the Pro­fes­sional Aca­demic Cen­ter. Re­fresh­ments will be served.
