This committee receives no pay, but

Chance Campus
Fostered First


The Fresh Air Camp was first con-
ceived when Lewis C. Wleimann, '16,
met Thomas S. Evans on the Univer-
sity campus in 1919. Both men real-
ized that they were interested in a
summer camp for boys as a means of
strengthening boys' character. Rei-
man, because of his direct contact
with summer camps for five years
and his intrinsic interest in the pyob-
lems of adolescent youth, was chosen
as supervisor of the camp for its
first summer.
Reimann raised $2,567 which en-
abled the first camp to remiain open
for six weeks in the months of June,
July and August. During four ten-
day periods, 130 boys selected by wel-
fare agencies and juvenile detention
homes were served.
