Another invaluable collaborator was Norman Rice, director emeritus of the Albany Institute.He brought to Dougherty numerous objects for the exhibit, including several that focused on State Street's fabled elm tree.The stately elm was planted on the northwest corner of State and North Pearl streets in the first half of the 18th century on the property of Philip Livingston, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.The elm tree corner became a landmark and popular gathering spot until it was cut down on June 15, 1877, during a widening of State Street.

"Norman considers the elm tree corner the city's iconic crossroads," Dougherty says.
Rice loaned his copy of the Elm-Tree Gazette from June 28, 1860, a piece of the elm tree in a commemorative setting, a bookplate and photo of the storied specimen.

Many research visits didn't go as planned.When Dougherty went to the office of philanthropist Matthew Bender IV, a major contributor to the exhibit, to discuss other matters, Bender reached for a desk drawer."Matt pulled out these exquisite drawings of the elaborate state Capitol elevator doors, rolled them up and told me to take them," Dougherty says.
