About the Author

During the summer of 2007, I morphed into an archivist for Camp Highlands for Boys (as a parergon, or side project to my day job). The catalyst was the phenomenal collection of glass lantern slides and photographs hidden away in Camp's old office building. This led to an archival website, which has taken on a life of its own. But how to get the highlights of the Archives into a book? Also, how do we capture the essence of each era at Camp Highlands? Thus, my first effort at a coffee table book...On Mike - A True Highlands Man. Four books followed: A Camp on Plum Lake, Historic Photographs from the Magical Archives, Sunday at Highlands, and Beautiful Highlands - Water, Woods, Camera, Camp. All focus on Camp Highlands.
