Gus’s Gossip

Doug Sherburne, Yawgoog Alumnus and former Camp Staff Man sent in a few photos.  We could sure use some help trying to identify the people in the pictures. 

Can you help identify the people in these photos?

Wayne was a student at the University of Missouri and one of the first non-Narragansett Council Scouts that Chief brought on staff.

If you happen to be one of the people in these photos or if you know who one or more of these people might be, please email me and let us know.  And, Doug, thanks for the great photos!  jferrante@narragansettbsa.org

    I have a good idea of the identity of several more of the Staff Members in the top two photos but am challenging YAA members to search their own memories. Several in this collection I got from Stan Leibo before his recent passing.

    In the picture with Inky, the one on the left end is Harvey Tracy and the one on the right end is Wayne Hollingsworth. In the other picture the one in the foreground is Dave Wilborn.
