Remembering 19th century life on Raquette Lake

Listen to this story
Physician, scholar, humanist, writer and artist are some of the monikers of a colorful visitor to the Adirondacks in the late 19th century. Dr. Arpad Gerster vacationed on Raquette Lake in the 1890s, and left behind pages of journal entries, musings and sketches of those summers in the Adirondacks. Todd Moe spoke with Sidney Whalen, editor of Notes Collected in the Adirondacks 1895 & 1896.
