Summary
Collection contains [John Howard--home movies], reels documenting Orrington, Maine, and troop activities of the Katahdin Council contingent of Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of America. The Boy Scouts attended the 1960 Colorado Springs National Jamboree and the 1964 Valley Forge National Jamboree. The Girl Scouts made a trip to Boston to the Museum of Science. Both series, while centered on the local troop, offer footage of national events reflecting the activities of similar local troops. The collection also contains [family slides] which parallel the scout activities and other family events. See also John and Elizabeth Kimball Howard and Stanton and Carol Kimball Young Collection.
