Abstract/Description
A scrapbook compiled by Reverend Michael E. Haynes, the former pastor of Twelfth Baptist Church and a participant in the Lower Roxbury Black History Project. Haynes attended Breezy Meadows Camp as a child and continued to work with the camp through his early 30's, first as a counselor and later as the Program Director (1951-1962). The Robert Gould Shaw House managed the summer camp in Holliston, Massachusetts for inner-city children from the Greater Boston area. The scrapbook includes photographs of the camp director and some of the African American youth Haynes worked with at the camp; some campers also signed the scrapbook and thanked Haynes for his mentorship.
