My mother just told me that her father, Harlan Walker, a mining engineer with
those fine folks who stole the gold from the Indians iin the Black Hills, the
Homestake Mine, was the founder (her words) of a Boy Scout camp built on land
donated by the Homestake somewhere near Lead/Deadwood, SD, in the '30's or
Does anyone out there have any info on this camp, its history, or its present
She also says that her mother, Anita Walker, was instrumental in founding a
Girl Scout camp in the same neighborhood. Any info on that?
