Canal Life, Circa 1831

Worth Noting

Ewa Hauser, director of the Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies, was chosen as a senior Fulbright Fellow. She will teach seminars on American culture and on the political films of Hollywood at the American Studies Center of the University of Warsaw beginning in September 2001.

History buffs have a dramatic glimpse of life along the Erie Canal more than 150 years ago.

Seymour Schwartz, Distinguished Alumni Professor of Surgery, discovered an 1831 journal written by a Unitarian minister from Brighton, England, and edited the 170-year-old journal for a 2000 publication, An Englishman's Journey Along America's Eastern Waterways, published by the University of Rochester Press.

An expert on historic maps, Schwartz found the antebellum journal in Chicago while researching his areas of interest.

The journal depicts minister Herbert Holtham's impressions of his journey through the eastern United States and Canada as well as his pen and ink drawings, including many of Rochester.
