Camp Nowhere

Jason Kirchner, Idaho Panhandle National Forest spokesman emails: “I thought some of your readers might be interested in an old photo that was recently emailed to me. The photo shows youth at Camp Nowhere in 1945. These young folks were part of the old blister rust control camps. I have been doing a little digging to try and learn more and found (this) mention of the camp from the Spokesman Review from the same year. Perhaps some of your readers are related to the folks in the picture and can identify more of the people pictured. So far we have identified Barney Brunelle, age 16, top row 2nd from left; Bill Edwards, 2nd row 4th from left; and Monk Faber, 2nd row, extreme right. It just so happens that Barney Brunelle is the father of the US Forest Service’s Andy Brunelle, who works as our capital city representative in Boise.”

Question: Does anyone know any of the people in this photo?
