Passing the Torch

Listening to a program about New York State history on WAMC recently, I was reminded that, by state law, every municipality in New York is required to have a historian. Since there has been no announcement from City Hall that a new historian was appointed after the death of Pat Fenoff, Hudson's long-serving city historian, I wondered if Hudson might be in violation of the law. Such is not the case.

Gossips learned recently that Linda Fenoff, Pat's daughter, is now the Hudson city historian. It was Pat's wish that her daughter succeed her, and Mayor Kamal Johnson obliged by appointing Linda to the post.

One of my favorite visual memories of Pat and Linda is seeing them together hard at work in the DAR library at the Robert Jenkins House, doing genealogical research. Hudson's history is in good hands.

  1. Perfect.

    Linda is always, organized, taking in, recording and keeping information safe; she is a "tap root" of Hudson institutional knowledge and a joy to work with.
