Daniel Ladue is a teacher-librarian whose writings reflect the rich social history of northern New York State. He is a world traveler and recently visited his 100th  country—a birthday challenge to himself for one of those BIG birthdays.  His niche is how historical events play out at the societal level. His current book is Two with Buried: The History of the Michigan Hot Dog.  For those unaware, a “Michigan” is a sauce unique to northeastern New York.  It’s a direct descendant of the Midwest Coney, but the Michigan is a a far-finer product. 

His new book will be available in the summer of 2024. He is currently wrapping up a project on the history of the Plattsburgh Municipal Beach.  Lest anyone wonder how a book could be written about a beach, it must be noted that it is the longest freshwater beach east or west of Lake Michigan.  At only 60 miles south of Montreal, the beach and its adjacent state park, saw upward to ½ million people visit yearly between the 1930s and 1980s.  It became a Canadian beach in the United States where French was the first language.

It was not uncommon for the beach to be referred to as a “suburb of Montreal.”  Plattsburgh Has its Bathing Beach: A Social and Cultural History of the Plattsburgh Municipal Beach will be available in 2026. Daniel is honored and excited to be part of the Women’s Lecture Series for the summer of 2024.
