Each year the Kelly Adirondack Center sponsors the work of Summer Research Fellows as they examine diverse topics that make the Adirondacks unique.  This summer fellowships are funded in part by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The grant is intended to further develop the Adirondack Studies at Union. Our Summer Research Fellows this year are two Union students,  Anna Gagion and Sanan Hajiyev. They are interviewing experts in their fields and working in the Adirondack Research Library using books and collections to examine the history of the Adirondacks. On August 1 they will present their findings along with the themes that have developed in their work.
