Photos Promotional Photo Series, 1957

My family was chosen for a series of photographs taken in Pelham Manor, NY in 1957.  Several of these were on display in the BSA National Headquarters for many years.

Photos Troop 1 - Hutchinson River Council

A chance photo of our BSA Troop encountered on the Web, with my brothers and myself included.

Photos Explorer Science Camp, 1961-1966

The United States in the 1960s increased public attention on science and leadership training, one of the positive effects of the cold war and the space race.  In 1961 the BSA Hutchinson River Council of Westchester County established the first Explorer Science Camp near Wingdale, NY, adjacent to the Boy Scouts Camp Siwanoy.

Photos Explorer Science Post 10, Pelham, NY

The first Explorer Scout post dedicated to science was chartered in my home town in 1962.  I served as Post President for two years and organized the first Science Fairs in 1963 and 1964.
