Scope and Content Note

This series consists of archival copies of the publicly accessible Web site of the New York State Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial Commission.

B2115-07: This accretion consists of a copy of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial Commission Web site produced on December 21, 2006, shortly before Governor George E. Pataki (1995-2006) left office. It contains information about the commission's mission and leadership, press releases (2005-2006), and a draft strategic plan (2006) for commemorating the 1609 voyages of Henry Hudson and Samuel de Champlain and the 1807 steamship voyage of Robert Fulton and highlighting the history, culture, and natural resources of the Hudson River-Lake Champlain corridor. Information about the history of the region is also included.

B2115-08: This accretion consists of a copy of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial Commission Web site produced on May 22, 2008, shortly after the resignation of Governor Eliot L. Spitzer. It contains information about the commission's leadership and applications and other information for local governments, community groups, and non-profit organizations seeking financial support for quadricentennial events. It also includes maps of the Hudson River-Lake Champlain corridor, information about the history of the region and its inhabitants, and information about planned events.

B2115-09: This accretion consists of a copy of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial Commission Web site produced on December 29, 2009, shortly before the commission ceased operations. Researchers should note that, owing to technical problems, only the content on the site's home page, which consists of information about autumn 2009 quadricentennial events and introductory text concerning the work of the commission, was captured successfully. Researchers should also note that the appearance of this copy differs substantially from that of the live site.

B2115-10: This accretion consists of a copy of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial Commission Web site produced on February 1, 2010, shortly after the commission ceased operations. It contains information about the commission's leadership, meeting minutes (2008-2009), press releases (2008-2009) and applications and other information for local governments, community groups, and non-profit organizations seeking financial support for quadricentennial events. It also includes historical and current maps of the Hudson River Valley and Lake Champlain region, photographs and other materials documenting commemorative celebrations that took place in 1909 and 1959, and information for teachers and schools seeking to incorporate the quadricentennial into their curricula.

Researchers should note that, owing to the site's structure and the limitations of Web archiving technology, the events calendar, events map, and bulletin board within the "Things to Do" section could not be captured properly and that the appearance of this copy's home page differs substantially from that of the live site. Researchers should also note that this site was removed from the live Web shortly after this copy was produced.
