Lumber camps were a popular Adirondack industry in the early 1900s. The images from this collection are from the travels of Presbyterian missionaries working in the camps. The lumber camp missionary program was started in 1914 and visited about 150 camps in the Adirondacks. It was created by Reverend Frank E. Higgins, and other missionaries including Aaron W. Maddox, Charles Atwood, C.W. Mason, John Logan, and Frank A. Reed.
