Robert Bogdan at Syracuse University is the author of "Exposing the
Wilderness: Early-20th-Century Adirondack Postcard Photographers and
Their Work." He presented at a NYS History conference I attended, and
showed many wonderful images of early Adirondack tourism taken by the
six postcard photographers he has studied.
