Public Program, Member Events

Dr. Bruce W. Dearstyne, Adjunct Professor, University of Maryland, College of Information Studies

Join Dr. Bruce W. Dearstyne, historian and former program director at the New York State Archives, for a lively and engaging presentation about the many ways in which the Empire State-and Albany, its capital–have played a key role in the course of American history. 

In his talk, based on his recently published book, The Spirit of New York, Dr. Dearstyne will share insights into many events in Albany and the upper Hudson Valley that affected the course of New York State history as well as stories of fascinating people such as Jackie Robinson and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, whose leadership brought changes not to just New York but to the whole county as well.
