DescriptionThe drawing entitled "posts for Crane House or Crane Lodge" was sketched by Canadian-American writer, artist and naturalist, Ernest Thompson Seton. As an author and illustrator of more than 50 works, he was largely responsible for the American Indian influence in the Boy Scouts of America that offered young people knowledge of an outdoor life based on Native American Indian customs, legends and beliefs. Seton was Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts of America from 1910 to 1915. The sketch is from a group of sketches done for Edgar Munroe Robinson, his friend and colleague, for use in the construction and design of the "Pueblo of the Seven Fires", a permanent camp structure completed in 1933 on the Springfield College East Campus. The East Campus is a sixty acre wooded grove on the shores of Lake Massasoit in Springfield, Massachusetts.
