The Hudson Highlands Revisited- William Thompson Howell
William Thompson Howell (1873-1916), born and raised in Newburgh, was an inveterate hiker, diarist, and photo journalist. His account of his hiking life, The Hudson Highlands, inspired hiking adventures during the 1900’s and influenced conservation of the Highlands. Howell’s diaries also inspired Richard and William Vacek, dedicated hiking brothers with a passion for history, to duplicate Howell’s hikes. Using Howell’s illustrations, the Vacek brothers will share Howell’s story and their own story of research and discoveries inspired by Howell.
