Daniel J. Mordell

Daniel J. Mordell's study of the first ceremonial digging on the Erie Canal appears in the summer 2001 issue of the Crooked Lake Review with his map showing sites where different chroniclers have written that the first work began on July 4, 1817. Dan Mordell has made many trips covering the canal route in central New York and the Mohawk Valley. He is a Batavia native, a charter member, in 1955, of the Canal Society of New York State, and a retired mechanical engineer.
