Wilson Boy Scouts, 1933

boy scouts 1933This picture was featured in the Wilson Historical Society Newsletter, but I thought I would place it here too.  From the Newsletter:

This photo of the Boy Scouts’ 1933 Gipsy Trip to Washington, DC comes to us from Charles Rountree of Wilson. Charles reports that his uncle, who died in 1944, and for whom he is named. Had the photo in his scrapbook. John Hackney is fifth from the left on the second row. Charles S. Rountree, Jr. is eighth from the left on the second row. The trip roster below also lists the following names: Woody Harrison, Dave Oettinger, Eli Joyner, Jimmy Fitzgerald, Tom Harvey, and many other prominent leaders in Wilson, Farmville, Kinston, Rocky Mount, and Greenville. Can you identify any of these folks? Email WCHA president Perry Morrison pmorrison@nccomplaw.com if you can, and we’ll include the names and identities in the next newsletter.
