Lucas Kaczynski is a 22 year old historian, artist, collector and storyteller from Maine, New York, 7 miles from Endicott in the rolling hills of the Susquehanna River Valley. He
has always been inspired by local history and the stories of the past that continue to color our lives today. This book was a product of 2 years of research and love for the community, finally coming to completion in 2020. Lucas attends Cortland State University in Cortland, New York, and hopes to become a history teacher so that he can continue to promote the study and appreciation of history and community culture among young people. Lucas is a lifelong collector of antique advertising signs and cans, Endicott Johnson memorabilia and regional history. His greatest joy is sharing his paintings, antiques collections, and enthusiasm for history with others,
and seeing nostalgia and curiosity bloom in those he meets.
