Subject: Canal lecturer

Hi, Folks 

A pictorial history of Wayne County includes a photo of a man with a microphone lecturing to some people on a boat. The caption reads:

"Trip on the Barge Canal with the Canal Society. Dr. David Ennis indicates points of interest (1961)." 

The "Canal Society" is presumably the Canal Society of New York State. People in the photo are wearing name tags with a silhouette of New York State clearly visible. My question is whether anyone can tell me who David Ennis is. He could be someone connected with the Canal Society, an historian, or a local physician with an amateur interest in the canal. Would the Canal Society have a record of this?

Best regards, 
Scott Monje
