About the Author:

Stephen B. Sulavik, M.D., first visited the Adirondacks in 1955; an avid fisherman, he became intrigued with the Adirondack guideboat, eventually becoming an authority on its builders and evolution. He then turned his passionate curiosity and well-honed research skills to the word Adirondack and to the region so named. Dr. Sulavik is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine and Professor Emeritus of Medicine at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He has published extensively and received many awards for clinical and teaching excellence.
