Occasionally people supply me with photographs I’ve never seen before that are of historical significance. Naturally, I like to research and share them with our readers in this column. George M. Deyoe has a photo of himself included as part of the local Boy Scout Troop 60 group photo taken in 1952. Historically, Albion once had numerous Boy Scout troops sponsored by local churches and institutions. The one remaining troop in town today, Troop 158, will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 1916. It is sponsored by the First Methodist Church.

Troop 60 was sponsored by the local American Legion, and met there in the meeting room above the garage when the Legion was still located at 211 E. Michigan Avenue. Wayne Dellage was the scoutmaster in the early 1950s. This particular photograph was taken during their campout week at Camp Teetonkah in Jackson County from July 27 through August 2, 1952. From our Historical Notebook this week, courtesy of George Deyoe, we present that photo. The numeral "60" can be seen on some of their sleeves. How many of our readers remember these boys?

Front row, left to right: David Weeks, George M. Deyoe, Richard Hunt, William Messacar, James Garrison, and Kenneth Lauer. Back row: Alden Hensel, Harlo Haines, Gary Sebastian, Dave Shannon; next is an unknown camp leader with the number "5" on his sleeve; William Shay, Graham Bryce, Basil Moss, and Lee Gallup.

Do you have any historical, group or merchant photographs that would make a good story in this column? If you do, please let me know. Your support of this column helps keep it going. Thank you for your support.
