BATH - The Steuben County Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations until March 31 for induction this year, according to county historian Emily Simms.

The county says guidelines for nomination are:

• Nominees may be any man, woman or child living or deceased, who has enhanced the name of Steuben County.

• Nominees should have resided in Steuben County but may have been born elsewhere.

• Past nominees not inducted into the county Hall of Fame may be renominated.

The Steuben County Hall of Fame has received more than 450 nominations since 1976, and has inducted 141 individuals who’ve made substantial contributions to the county and the world around them.

“When you look at the list of people with ties to this county who have contributed to their communities, the state, the nation, even the world, it’s awe-inspiring,” said Simms. “The point of the county Hall of Fame is we have every-day heroes among us who inspire us.”

Last year’s inductees feature former county manager Mark Alger, Clara “The Orphan Train Lady” Comstock, and social activist Anna Cadogan Etz. They were inducted in July 2018.

Other past inductees include former Republican congressman Amo Houghton, Jr., aviation pioneer Glenn H. Curtiss, and Dr. Roy Robinson, a Wayland family physician who delivered 2,258 babies over the course of a 42-year career.
