Using the collections of the American Museum
of Natural History Library as a springboard, the purpose of this site
is three-fold: to serve as an online resource for Burroughs scholars
and students by bringing together biographical and critical information
about John Burroughs; to provide information about the John Burroughs
Association and its activities; and to highlight the collections of
the American Museum of Natural History, which contains a permanent exhibit
dedicated to Burroughs, and its Library, which is a repository of several
collections of photographs and early film.

The Town of Olive Archives was organized in 1992 by the Town Clerk. They consist of collections of records that contain important information about the past-what really happened, how it happened, and why. The Archives are largely ordinary records of the day they were written. Their value to us increases steadily each year because the information they contain remains fresh and accurate, while our memories do not.
A personal perspective by
Camilla Calhoun on the old town of Olive and it's removal for the construction of the Ashokan Reservoir.
Camp High Point, in West Shokan, New York, was established in 1923. For nearly 50 years, thousands of boys and girls passed through the "front gate" to spend eight weeks with their summer "family." To those of us who went there, High Point was family. Owned and operated for many years by the Sonnenreich family (Fay, Manny, Bill, Mike, and Joe), High Point was a very special place. When it closed after the 1970 season, an era came to an end. I hope this Web site helps reunite long-lost friends who have a lot of fond memories to share.
