101 Years With Frank A. Doolittle: Lessons of Hard Work and Perseverance In the Life of a Local Centenarian of Bainbridge, N.Y. a Memoir

173 pages2 hours


These recollections of Frank A. Doolittle span 101 years and are written primarily from his own words as dictated to his nieces and nephews. In these accounts you will be able to discover Frank’s exceptional dry country humor that has endeared him to so many of his friends and relatives. His adherence to always having worthwhile community service to perform, to owning a local business in town and more recent to his daily chores and balanced diet have filled his busy days. The Doolittle and Lyon families have asked to include some family history and old photos. You will see some of these as well.

Imagine 100 years ago when Frank was a young boy, the oldest of 4 children, and the son of a school teacher and a lumberjack. The reader will leaf through the ten decades that include cultivating crops, processing maple syrup and becoming a successful business man, well respected in and around Bainbridge, New York.
