You may have noticed during reunion weekend meals at the Dorset Community Center, we had a computer and scanner set up and spent a lot of time capturing print photo images from alumni who had opened albums and shoe boxes and closets and pulled out shots taken during their days at camp.
One of the treasure troves of the weekend — a large collection from the Ortner family including Bill, Carol Ortner Inserra and Patty Ortner Coughlin. I’m hoping we will get some additional feedback from the Ortners and others to help us identify as many people as we can. You will note however, that many of these shots appear to stretch back into the 40s and forward as far as the mid-50s or so, as evidenced by the appearance of female campers who first arrived in force in1956. There are also shots from at least one Dorset Regatta.
We’ve tried to do some organization of things, and you will note the transition from camper tents to cabins as one evidence of the changes chronicled.
