Thanks to Jerry Gray for posting the obit of H.Cushman "Gus" Anthony. I lost
my copy when I first posted this passing an Scouting Legend.
Gus has noted joined the 3rd Providence Troop whose scoutmaster was the 17
year old J.Harold Williams who went on to be a legend in Narragansett
Council, nationally, and internationally
Imagine it Gus spent 53 summers at Yawgoog Scout Reservation. What is not
mentioned is that he started the Yawgoog Alumni Fund that now has an
endowment of $750,000 and growing? Gus and his starters of the Alumni Fund
decreed the principal would not be spent only interest thus the fund with
annual dues just grows and grows and grows!
Thanks once again for posting the obit Jerry
