My Occupation Archivist - Curator - Historian - Photographer - Writer
My Bio 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. Five books followed: A Camp on Plum Lake, Historic Photographs from the Magical Archives, Sunday at Highlands, Beautiful Highlands - Water, Woods, Camera, Camp; and a 2013 reprise of To Brag Little, to Show Well. All focus on Camp Highlands. Don't hesitate to contact me at plumlakekid@gmail.com

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
A three book series of each and every page of the ancient camp annuals - The Dinglebats. I am also working on re-presenting To Brag Little, To Show Well - with photos. After this, 'Faces of Highlands' - a panoramic book of all the old All Camp photos. Then, it is off to the CA-HI-BO's - by decade. Each decade will have its own book. I might then do a book on Warwick Woods - the sister camp of Camp Highlands from 1921 - 1960.
