All-Camp Group Photos

© FNCA 2015Most years at camp, there comes a day when we gather everyone together and take a group photo. In recent decades, it's usually been right after lunch on middle Saturday or Sunday, whichever day the most people are at camp. A group photo is a long-standing camp tradition dating back to the 1920s. Several dozen of these group shots are on display in the Dole Wing hallway and on a nearby wall in the Dole Wing lounge.

So here's a chronological journey © Emily Woofenden 2008through the years, beginning with our earliest days and traveling down through time to the present.

WEBMASTER'S NOTE: Although these group photos were taken nearly every session, we only have 35 out of the FNCA's 96 years represented here. As you can see from the links chart below, however, a surprising number of recent years are missing. Chances are slim that group photos from the earliest years will turn up (although the 1937 one did in 2016!), but we have high hopes to significantly increase the collection at least back to the 1980's. So please, check your photo collection and contact the FNCA Webmaster if you can fill in any of the missing years. Thanks!

This is the infamous group photo in which Gordon Blackmer, the young gentleman in white standing in the back row on the left, knew that the photo was being taken by a fairly slow moving pan camera. He very carefully stood still on the left until the camera had moved beyond him, then swiftly ran behind everyone, and got in position on the right before the camera got there, and hence appears in this photo twice!

Gordon Blackmer was a life-long camera buff, so he knew what he was doing and obviously planned this stunt ahead of time. You can read a bit more about "Gordo" here.
