An excellent microcosm of Adironack history. 

An Adirondack Archive: The Trail to Windover
North Country Books, 1993. Local History. ISBN# 0925168173 

Nan Clarkson is the granddaughter of William and Harriet Beecher 
Hudnut, and archivist of their large and accomplished family, whose 
gathering place in the Adirondacks is Windover.

She is listed in Who's Who in American Women as a "community 
volunteer," and she has served on the board of her college and both 
museum and arts organizations.  She was one of the founding members of 
the Museum Associates of the State Museum in Albany, and was Chair of 
the Arts Commission of the City of Buffalo. In the Adirondacks, she was 
on the board of the RR Museum of the North Creek Railway depot.
