History, Boy Scouts, P K Fitzhugh
« on: October 23, 2005, 01:19:10 AM »
Hello everyone,
New Guy- Jeff Rhoads here,
I am glad to be a part of this forum. I am doing research on the author (and long-time Hackensack resident) Percy Keese Fitzhugh. PKF was once the most popular childrens author in the US. Most of his stories pertain to the early days of the Boy Scouting movement. If you are unfamiliar with him or his writings, you can checkout my web page www.bridgeboro.com. Nearly all of his Scouts lived in the fictitious town of Bridgeboro, NJ which is actually Hackensack. I am hoping to meet people who might have information pertaining to the Boy Scouts, The early days of Hackensack in general 1917 - 1950, and/or Mr. Fitzhugh. Any help you could give me would be appreciated.
Jeff
