Hudson River Ice Yacht Club Book 1900

George Buckhout's  copy of HRIYC club membership book from 1900.  

Archie Roger's is now Commodore. His neighbors Thomas Newbold & John Hopkins are fellow officers.
Newbold, a Democrat, was NYS senator from the 15th district and served 1884-1885.
Hopkins was a local druggist in Hyde Park.

Note that George Buckhout placed checkmarks next to boat names.
These are yachts built by Jacob or George Buckhout.

Club yachts are divided into 5 class sizes by 1900. 48 yachts enrolled in the club. 

Inside cover of book with George Buckhout's signature.
I put one of his builder's name plates on the page (which didn't capture very well..)
