To NYS DOCSers (current and retired):

Above are three images sectioned off from a photo on Page 2 of an August 1970 NYS Correction Department booklet distributed at the agency's state fair exhibit that year in Syracuse. The three section images are so positioned above as to appear a single image.

Clicking on any one of these three section images -- left, center, or right -- accesses a corresponding close-up view of the people in that section. Each of the close-up section image pages provides navigation links to move between the three close-up view pages or to return to this page.

To access the picture as a single (un-sectioned) image, click the image below.

Double click this image to access a 232K single JPG image (un-sectioned) of the group, about 9.2 inches wide and 5 inches in height. Use your browser's "back" button to return to this page.
The 1970 booklet's caption beneath the photo provides no names. It reads:

Posing with Department of Correction officials is a group of correction officers who have just completed the intensive 120-hour program of instruction at the Department's Training Academy at Beacon.

Some in the photo would have been in their 20s or 30s at the time the picture was taken 40 years ago.

Recognize anyone? Yourself? Someone else? Know someone who might recognize people in the photo? Share this page with someone who might get a kick out of the trip down memory lane the photo provides.

The booklet containing the photo was among the archived materials of the late Auburn corrections historian John N. Miskell that his family has generously made available to the webmaster of this correctionhistory.org website.
