First Town Historian
In 1918, NYS adopted a law requiring a local historian be appointed in every municipality. Perinton appointed Charlotte Clapp to that position.
She was then recruited to serve as deputy clerk and then town clerk. She was elected to that position, becoming the 1st woman to hold an elected office in Perinton.
