Kingston man credits Camp Squanto with life success

Camp Squanto, the Old Colony Council of the Boy Scouts of America camp in Plymouth, was founded in 1925. But it never had a painting of Squanto, the Native American who helped the Pilgrims in their first winter in the New World.

Robert Jerden Whittier of Kingston changed that. It was the least he could do, he felt, for the camp that had meant so much to him as a boy who went there for five summers in the 1930s.
