We learned today of the passing of former professional Scouter Archie Crain. Crain was never a Camp Director at Boxwell, but was part of the team in the late 1950s and early 1960s that launched and executed the most successful Capital Campaign in Scouting’s history in 1959. Crain went on to become Finance Director in Middle Tennessee before becoming an Council Executive in his own right in Mississippi and eventually ended up running the Atlanta from 1979 to his retirement in 1998.
Archie Crain passed away September 14, 2019. We just learned of this today.
