I was first drawn to this post because as a Boy Scout, we had canoed through from Old Forge to Saranac (where Fish Rock Camp is situated).
The pages are remarkable.
As I began to leaf through the specific pages, in addition to well crafted sketches and rambling verse, I found family names I recognized as being some of the prominent NY bankers of the time. Seligman, Warburg, Loeb, Schiff and their families. Very interesting. It appears that Fish Rock Camp - later called Seton - was one of their getaways. The 'camp' comprised numerous buildings to accomodate the lifestyle to which these folk were accustomed. For those interested I found a short history here: http://www.sekonassociation.com/file...RROUNDINGS.pdf
Thanks for posting.
