Al Folger 1913-1991. No OH has been friend to more of our members in the last half-century than Alan B. Folger. He was employed by the First National Bank of Boston and served the AMC as Councillor of Trails.
Al spent the summers of ’36 and ’37 as a crew member at Pinkham before an official chef such as Tex Benton and Uncle Fred Armstrong. Shortly thereafter, he became a councillor of the seasonal Camp Wigwam, joining OH Chief Don Allen, Bud Harding and Foochow Belcher. This focused his interests so that after World War II service in the Army Air Corps, he spent practically every weekend from May to November at the OH Cabin and in the huts.
We shall all miss our cherished friend and his many ‘folgerisms’.
