Title: Camp Midvale/Nature Friends of America Oral History Collection

Abstract: Camp Midvale, located near Ringwood, New Jersey, was purchased by the Nature Friends of America in 1930. The U.S. branch of this organization was founded by German-American socialists and trade unionists in 1910 to provide workers with outdoor recreational opportunities. Interviewees describe life at the camp, hiking and other activities, the immigrant experience, and political activities. The collection's thirty-five interviews were conducted by Andy Lanset and were used to create the radio documentary "Camp Midvale: An Oral History," which is also included in the collection. Indexes are available for many interviews.
