It will provide educational scholarships to applicants that have a family connection to one or more relatives who lived in the village of Tahawus.

Tahawus Cloudsplitters on line:
In November 2015, Len Gereau delivered his collection of 196 Tahawus Cloudsplitters, spanning the years from 1943 to the last Cloudsplitter printed in 1971, to the Northern New York Library Network in Canton, NY. Over the past several months they have graciously scanned every issue and the Cloudsplitters are now available online to all who have an interest.
If you can locate any of the following missing issues, please notify me so they can also be scanned: November 1960; January 1961; September, October, November 1962; January 1963; March, October 1965. Please use the following procedure to access the Tahawus Cloudsplitters. Best wishes! Enjoy your research.
