for more than 30 years.
his retirement, he became reestablished in the arena of journalism,

task of researching and chronicling regional people, places, and
happenings he believes worthy of preservation. He does this via
his books and a two-series-a-year local-history column he writes
the Utica Observer-Dispatch.
