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 © Emily Woofenden 2008camp. A group photo is a long-standing camp tradition dating back to the 1920s. Several dozen of them are on display in the Dole Wing hallway and on a nearby wall in the Dole Wing lounge.

So here's a chronological journey through 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 year, we only have 46 of them on this page. As you can see from the links chart below, a surprising number of photos between 1952-2009 are missing, especially in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. So please, check your photo collection and contact the FNCA Webmaster if you can fill in any of the missing years. Thanks!

1937

This is the infamous photo in which Gordon "Gordo" 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.
