William J. Brewster album, 1933
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The William J. Brewster album (2011-50-0) was given to Rev. William J. Brewster by his Sheltering Arms Congregation in 1933 for his seventy-fifth birthday. The album contains birthday wishes and signatures from campers who attended Camp White and Camp Gould.  These were camps run by the Episcopal Church for inner city orphans and located on Bantam Lake.  Camp White was for the girls and Camp Gould for the boys. The camps were in operation from as early as 1933 to at least 1940.  Included in the album are photographs from the camps which show children participating in camp activities such as canoeing and swimming. Also in the album is a poem titled "A Tribute" that was written for Rev. Brewster, as well as a prayer written by Mary Conklin and Gloria Ruby.

The item is currently housed in 3A Box 4.
