POTSDAM -- A Clarkson University professor has received the New York State Library's Anna K. and Mary E. Cunningham research residency.

Stephen D. Farina will use the grant to fund his research on Benjamin Hough, a forestry pioneer form Lowville who died in 1885.

Hough’s work helped establish the Adirondack and Catskill Parks, a statement from Clarkson says. He also helped preserve water resources that enabled the growth of New York City in the late-19th and early-20th centuries, according to the release.
