  1. I attended Camp May Flather for six years from approximately 1951 to 1957. Today I was looking at old photograghs that I had taken during those summers and wondered if you would like me to send you copies of them. I can be reached at or 415 647-2042. I live in San Francisco and have wonderful memories of Camp May Flather.
