    Presenter: Dr. Samuel P. Clemence, Interim Dean of Hendricks Chapel and Professor Emeritus in the College of Engineering and Computer Science

    Famous in song and story, the Erie Canal linked the waters of Lake Erie in the west to the Hudson River in the east. The canal’s engineering achievements are one of the great stories of American technology. Following the canal’s opening in 1825, upstate New York became the equivalent of our modern day “Silicon Valley.”  Its impact was extraordinary, both on the state of New York and the entire United States. It has been called the Mother of Cities, Pathway to an Empire, and the Eighth Wonder of the World. Dr. Clemence’s multi-media presentation will include songs, video, and animations that describe the planning, construction, and completion of the canal.

    Breakfast will be ready at 8:00 a.m. and the presentation will begin at 8:30 a.m.  Pre-and post-talk gives plenty of time to meet your fellow alumni, connect, and network.

    Price for the event is $15 at the door and includes breakfast, event, and gratuities. There is ample free parking.
