Karin Lodinsky Nelson '92 Authors Book

Karin Lodinsky Nelson '92 is the co-author, with Anne Clarke Logan, of a recently published book The Ladies of Hyde Hall: History, Hospitality, Letters, and Recipes 1819-1963.  The book sheds some light on the lives of the female occupants of Hyde Hall, a landmark in Cooperstown and  Anne Clarke Logan's childhood home.

According to the publisher, Hyde Hall, a National Historic Landmark, stands as a monument to the Clarke family who built and lived in it for more than 130 years. "Architect Philip Hooker’s masterful design combines the refined English country house with the architectural tradition of early 19th-century America.   

... Recipes from the time period conclude each section on each lady of Hyde Hall.  With more than 300 photographs, this richly illustrated book offers a unique glimpse into the way of life shaped by six generations of Clarke family tradition."

Karin Lodinsky Nelson is the former director of operations for Hyde Hall. She graduated from Hamilton in 1992 with a major in sociology. She played softball and was a member of Kapa Delta Omega. She and her husband Michael, class of 1991, live in Cherry Valley, New York, with their two sons.
