Remembering the Staff

Boxwell Reservation, 1962

After looking at the previous Boxwells last week, this week we turn our attention to the Boxwell Reservations staffs of 1962. Ward Akers was Council Executive and James “Foxy” Johnson was Reservation Director. Chester LaFever was Program Director at Stahlman and the Camp Director (a District Executive then) was Charlie Biderman. Camp Parnell was led by Program Director Harold Hitt and Camp Director Ralph Manus. The Ski Dock was run by G. E. McCormack and Camp Murrey by Joan Hitt, Harold’s wife. Coleman Wright was the Ranger.

We only have a staff photo from Camp Parnell, but we present a second photo as well. We don’t know who all the people here are, but the man in the back left is James Johnson and the man center is Ward Akers. It’s a good shot of both men. If you know the other individuals, tell us!
