Guide to the Camp Midvale / Nature Friends of America Oral History Collection
||Camp Midvale/Nature Friends of America Oral History Collection
||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.
