Free

The Oswego County Annual Membership Meeting will be held on Sunday May 20, 1:30 PM at the Oswego Public Library Community Room. All OCHS members and the general public are invited.

Following the annual meeting, Robert Perkins, EdD, will give a presentation on the historic research that he did for his latest book: “Oswego’s Legacy: Lost to the Ages.”

“Oswego Legacy” features a literal and visual look back at some of Oswego’s major industries from 1870 – 1920. Perkins presents a survey of fifty factories: the Kingsford Starch Factory, Diamond Toy Factory, Oswego Candy Works, Conde Knitting Mills, to name a few. Boiler makers, iron works, foundries, and lumber yards, the production of soy products, paper, and window shade cloth – readers get a glimpse of the city’s vast industrial complex as well as the many talented personalities who influenced Oswego’s legacy.

Bob Perkins, educator, administrator and author was born in Oswego and spent nearly his entire professional career in Oswego.

The book is available at the river’s end Bookstore on W. Bridge and 1st St., and will also be available for sale and signing at the annual meeting.
