note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

Don't even think of it!

of Plattsburgh*, New York

(the late, if unlamented - NOT the newer #
Champlain College of Burlington, Vermont,
nor any of the others that keep coming out of the woodwork!)

This page has now been visited times since the counter was installed.

ACUNY Seal - B&W
The seal of ACUNY (not Champlain, alone), with Mohawk, Sampson, and Champlain,
left, center, and right on the scroll (from the title page of the Gilbert book).

* - The city in the far northeastern corner of New York State,
on the northwestern shore of Lake Champlain,
just south of the Canadian border and Montréal, is Plattsburg (no "h");
the Pennsylvania city far to the southwest, has an h on the end - Pittsburgh -
but Champlain College was located in Plattsburg
(no matter what they call it now!).

[Ah!  But see Spelling on the main page.]

If you love the North Country or the Adirondack Mountains, you'll love the Adirondack Museum smack dab in the heart of the Adirondacks at Blue Mountain Lake, New York.  It tells the story of the Adirondacks far better than any book could.  I heartily recommend a visit!  If you can't get there, you may wish to visit my Adirondacks page.

You will find some yarns about my time at Champlain there.

Notable Alumnus - In the Spring 2005 issue (actually issued in 2007) of the NRHS BULLETIN, Volume 70, the journal of the NATIONAL RAILWAY HISTORICAL SOCIETY, on page 4, is a feature article about famed railroad photographer Jim Shaughnessy, of whom I've known for many years now (and whom I've met).  What I did NOT know about Jim Shaughnessy, a life-long resident of Troy, New York, is that he applied to RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) there but lacked the math skills required and so went to Champlain for the 1951-52 school year and then transferred to RPI, from which he graduated in 1955 in Civil Engineering.

This page is about the CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE
that was in Plattsburgh, New York.

If you think this admonition and the one at the top of the page are a gag, think again!
I have had a steady trickle of requests for application forms - really, truly.

Be sure to visit the main Champlain College page, the Continuation Page 1, Continuation Page 2, and the Continuation Page 3, as well.

note-rt.gif  I had recommended that you also see the Champlain College Website of Strat Simon, quite the capable photographer, who had put up six pages on Champlain on his "http://home.earthlink.net/~stratis13/" photo site, where you could have clicked on the blue college seal at lower right, or you could have gone directly there by clicking "http://home.earthlink.net/~stratis13/champlain/index.html" but his sites are now gone.  I had hoped to be able to reproduce all, or at least most, of his old site here - stay tuned!   new (01 Jul 2013) and   rev (01 Jul 2013) Well, Strat came through nobly; the first 21 of his pix, some of which are reproduced elsewhere on these Champlain College pages and some of which are new to me, are now on a separate page, http://sbiii.com/chamsspx.html.   new (31 Jul 2013)
