Modern reprise of Janet Monilaw Farr's touching collection of remembrances from the golden age of one of America's oldest summer camps: the mid-century reflections and early to mid-century photographs of 46 alumni - as they look back nostalgically on their halcyon days at Camp Highlands for Boys in Sayner, Wisconsin.

- spans the period from 1913 - 1953. (The camp dates to 1904, but by the 1970's when this book was originally published, the first generation had already passed on.)
- 289 historic photographs
- supplemental sidebar material to fill in the blanks on references made by the writers/contributors.
- Janet Monilaw Farr's complete camp remembrances
- All new material on some of the most celebrated alumni from the era:
- Cold War architects George Kennan ('15,'16) and Paul Nitze ('21,'22)
- Heisman Trophy winners Jay Berwanger ('34,'35) and Nile Kinnick ('38)

Camp Highlands for Boys is the oldest private summer camp west of the Allegheny mountains. It was born out of the Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago - the Laboratory Schools at the U of C. With the camp came the people of the community. The two were directly connected by rail - if one took the Hiawatha from Union Station to it's terminus (for the first 2 decades from the original Union Station!).

The Camp still exists today on the shores of Plum Lake in Wisconsin's North Woods. See for more. There you will find a link to the Highlands Archives:

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. Four books followed: A Camp on Plum Lake, Historic Photographs from the Magical Archives, Sunday at Highlands, and Beautiful Highlands - Water, Woods, Camera, Camp. All focus on Camp Highlands.
