Many thanks, Walter, for responding! "Foxlair" was the former estate of Richard Hudnut who made his fortune in the cosmetics industry. During the 1920s, Rudoloph Valentino vacationed there! When the PAL took over the estate, the name, "Foxlair" continued. There were campers who were in bunks as well as in the many rooms of the big mansion where the meals were served. During my first summer (1950) I was in one of the bunks, called "Cayuga". Other bunks were also named for New York State Indian tribes (or finger lakes) such as "Oneida","Onandaga" and "Seneca". I stayed in the mansion during the next summer (1951). In July of 1965, on the way back from our honeymoon in Canada, my wife and I walked the grounds of the camp which was deserted. If you google "Foxlair", you will get its whole history, including how it was taken over by the P.A.L.

Regards,
Sammy
