Scope and Content Note

The first series of the collection contains the camp's administrative records; Executive meeting minutes, office records, program audits, and other materials related to the running of the camp. This series includes legal records relating to New York State's investigation of Kinderland as an alleged subversive institution. Of particular interest are transcripts from the State Legislative Committee hearings conducted in 1955 with the Camp's director/instructors David Greene and Edith Segal. A copy of Kinderland's FBI file, obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request, is also in this series.
