October 31 – Happy Birthday Francis Cuda

cudaBorn in Utica on October 31, 1920, Cuda graduated from that city’s Proctor’s High School in 1938. He next attended the Hudson River State Hospital School of Nursing in Poughkeepsie and began his career as a nurse. After serving in the Pacific with the US Navy during World War II, Cuda took advantage of the GI Bill and earned his BS degree in business administration from Union College. He then relocated to the Washington D.C. area where he worked as a nursing supervisor at several area hospitals while earning his masters in hospital administration from Catholic University. He then accepted a position as Assistant Director of Nursing at a hospital in Crownsville, Maryland…

So when did Cuda move to Amsterdam and where did he go to work?

I tell you in the new 2nd Edition of my book “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam NY Birthdays” which will be available for sale on Saturday, December 10, 2016.
