News of the Library Associates

Syracuse University Library Associates met on April 29 at Everson Museum in Syracuse, the first stop in a tour of three central New York points of special interest. Following an hour at the Museum, the Associates moved on to the Oneida Community near Oneida, Madison County, where Dr. Nelson M. Blake of the University's History department spoke on the history of the Community. Mrs. Miles E. Robertson, granddaughter of the Community's founder and a trustee of Library Associates, also spoke informally before the Associates toured the Mansion House, the main building of the Community where the entire Oneida "family" was housed and conducted their indoor activities. Luncheon was served in the Mansion House dining rooms before the Associates went on to Utica, where they saw the Shaker exhibit at Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute and visited its neighbor, the restored nineteenth-century home known as Fountain Elms.
