About the Author
In Jamestown, Kathleen Crocker and Jane Currie pay homage to the sole city on Chautauqua Lake. Crocker, a retired English teacher, has managed the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle at the Chautauqua Institution for twelve years. Currie is a professional photographer and business owner in Dewittville on the shore of Chautauqua Lake. Jamestown complements their previous Arcadia publications on the region, Chautauqua Institution: 1874-1974 and Chautauqua Lake Region.
Passionate about their ancestral roots in Chautauqua County, Kathleen Crocker, manager of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle at the Chautauqua Institution, and Jane Currie, photojournalist and shopkeeper, also coauthored Chautauqua Institution, 1874-1974. For Chautauqua Lake Region, they gathered primarily from private collections nearly two hundred images, many of them never before published, and combined them with local lore and eyewitness accounts gleaned from personal interviews. The result is a thought-provoking and historically accurate visual retrospective that stands as a high tribute to the unique heritage and unforgettable charm of the region.
