Discover the Wizard of Schenectady: the Steinmetz Digital Collection

The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were a very exciting time in the world of electrical engineering. During this period, electricity transformed from a scientific novelty to an essential part of our modern lives.  You've probably heard the names of a few of the great electrical pioneers from this era, like Thomas Edision and Nikola Tesla, but have you ever heard of Charles Proteus Steinmetz?

Libraries Past and Present

April's a big month for libraries. And as many of us at NY Heritage are librarians, it's a big month for us too. In addition to being School Library Month, April 12-18 is National Library Week, April 14 is National Library Workers Day, and National Bookmobile Day is April 15. I strongly encourage you to check out your local public and school libraries for any special programs or events.

But also be sure to celebrate the history of libraries in New York State. Here, on New York Heritage, there are a number of collections featuring the libraries and librarians of the past.

International Women's Day

March 8th is International Women's Day, a global day celebrating the economic, political, and social achievements of women past, present, and future. The theme for this year's International Women's Day is “Make It Happen,” and part of that is the celebration and education of women's achievements. Here at New York Heritage, it is understood that by better understanding our past we can make a better future. Luckily, in New York State, there is a rich history of women with outstanding achievements in many areas.
