Naming the Unknowns, July 22, 2015

This week’s unknowns brings up to a time a little more current than last week’s photo.  Here’s what we know: The photo is from Camp Craig, 2009.  Clearly, this is a flag ceremony and the time stamp of 7:48am tells us this is morning flag raising.  The folder is labeled as “Thomas.”

We know Lee Craft.  Who is everyone else?  Who is “Thomas” referring to here?

Chase Standifer has been very helpful in naming many of the people in his photos.  However, there are still a few mysteries!

These three photos are from Stahlman, 2004.  All are during the singing of Zoomba at a meal.  However, there is no indication of who they are.  Care to fill in the blanks?

Website Updates

As always, we endeavor to make known the changes to the website.

First, we discovered recently that O. E. Brandon has died.  While we haven’t been able to track down an official obituary, we know that Mr. Brandon has left us.  O. E. Brandon worked at the Narrows Boxwell and the Rock Island Boxwell.

Second, we have made updates to our Rock Island history as reported last week: http://virtualboxwell.org/v3/blog/2015/03/28/rock-island-updates/

Finally, as we try to do about every three months, we have updated our banner image.  The original is below.  Photo by Cameron Grady.

Craig Friday Night

This is an image of the Friday Night Campfire from Duck Head. In the late 1990s, the Friday Night Campfire at Craig moved from a small space between sites 10 and 13 to a new location toward Duck Head. It is now located south of the Don Stafford Chapel next to the “new” Activity Yard. on Duck Head.
