Since I've started talking with some of you, I suspect it would be courteous to
get around to the introductions.
I am Ernie Anderson, by vocation Professor of Education at University of
Massachusetts, Amherst, into computers since the Mark I at Harvard, and
into electronic networking since my days as a Western Union operator in the
Cub and Scout 1939-1946, when I don't remember thinking anything of it if the
leader wore skirts instead of pants. We were glad enough to have leaders at
all more than once. Was President of the Senior Degree, a now defunct senior
scout organization with ceremonies much like the OA (including the one recently
Now dual registered with Great Trails Council in western Mass. where my son
went thru Scouting and with Quinnipiac Council in Connecticut. I am
responsible for the East Shore District's International/High Adventure
activities, which include providing Scouting experiences for the youth and
their leaders of the Soviet Mission to the United Nations. They are coed;
Girl Scout troops come to our Camporees. We also organized what I think was
the first High Adventure trip to the Peoples Republic of China, which was to
have left June 10, 1989 (!!).
Formerly Assistant Leader of a Junior Troop, then organizer and Leader of
a Cadette troop, GSUSA. (I have a daughter too.)
Active in United Church of Christ Association of Scouters.
Peace be with you all.
