Prof's Research Leads to New North Country Historical Marker

A historical marker now commemorates the 1889 Barnum and Bailey Circus train wreck in Potsdam thanks to Adjunct Assistant Professor Nicole Roché.

Roché assisted in piecing together historical accounts of the incident, which took place just north of Potsdam on August 22, 1889. The sign, sponsored by the Pomeroy Foundation, is one of fewer than 20 in St. Lawrence County.

Read the story from the Watertown Daily Times.

Roché teaches in the University's First-Year Program and is the Project Support Assistant on St. Lawrence's Digital Scholarship team.
