Hello Stuart:

Dick Warner forwarded {snailmail) a copy of your Feb. 12 email to him including a copy of the 1949 Camp Kern Report. I found it very interesting and it brought back many memories. 1949 was my eighth and final year on the camp staff. We camped at the old campsite but hiked up the hill twice each day to use the new swimming pool.

You requested if I have an email address. Yes.

It is good of you to share this CK info.

Best wishes,
