Professor, students lauded for Niagara hydroelectricity history

The dramatic story of how great minds of science and industry harnessed the Niagara River to produce electricity over a century ago earned its authors high honors. “The Power Trail: History of Hydroelectricity at Niagara,” written by UB professor of architecture Lynda Schneekloth and three of her former students, received the Merit Award of Achievement from the New York State Upstate Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The book, published in September 2006, was co-authored by Brett Gawronski (M.Arch. ’05, BS ’03), Thomas Yots (M.Arch. ’02) and Jana Kasikova (M.Arch. ’05, B.S. ’03). Read more.
