The histories of Penn Yan and Keuka Lake are tied together not only by geography, but also by commerce. Native Americans were the first to use the lake as a means of transport; it was not until the 1830s that area settlers began to use the lake for transportation. Mills along the outlet from Keuka into Seneca Lake provided Penn Yan with much of its early commercial viability. The lake and the outlet supplied navigable waters to import raw materials, and export the mills’ production along with agricultural products.

His writings have appeared in numerous aviation and general-interest publications.
