The Passing of Claus “Dutch” Mann

The VirtualBoxwell team is sad to report that Claus ‘Dutch’ Mann passed away today.  Visitation and funeral service information can be found here: http://www.nealtarpleyparchman.com/tributes/Claus-Mann.
 
Dutch joined the Stahlman staff in 1964 as the range officer, where he stayed for several years. He became a Stahlman Commissioner when the reservation moved to the Commissioner system in 1971. It was at this time that Dutch started the Boxwell Gizmo (yes, that Gizmo). He moved to Camp Parnell and ran Field Sports for several years in the 1970s. IN 1976, when the Great Staff Walk Out occurred, Dutch was one the men who walked out, though he came back several days later. Dutch spent most of the rest of his tenure as a Craig-Parnell staff member, mostly as Handicraft Director in his later years, but he did spend on summer in the 1980s back at Stahlman as Activity Yard Director. He was part of the group that orchestrated the first staff reunion in 1983. Dutch’s last summer was 1996, though he remained connected to the camp, carving the awards for the 2014 Staff Reunion.  Dutch remained active before finally succumbing to cancer this year.

The Death of E. B. Stahlman

One of the nice things about newspapers is that you can find obituaries.  Obituaries are a sad reminder of our mortality, but at the same time, they are an excellent way to sum up a person’s life.  If you were a person like E. B. Stahlman, you might even get a front page notification that continues further inside the paper!

From the Tennessean, June 13, 1974, pgs 1 and 7.
