Summary :

The approximately 100 photos in this collection taken between 1908 and 1926 document the activities of Archibald Hurd, executive secretary of the YMCA Windsor District of Vermont and New Hampshire from 1906 to 1957. During the early part of the twentieth century the YMCA provided many of the services now associated with school programs, such as organizing athletic clubs, debate teams, educational programs for immigrants and vocational training programs.

Many of the photographs show events at Play Festivals which were started in 1907 and held annually until 1929.The photographs also show social services provided by the Windsor YMCA at the state fairs including public rest rooms, a day nursery and an emergency hospital. The Social Welfare Exhibit held in White River Junction in 1914 that was initiated, financed and managed by the YMCA is also documented. There are photos of the State Corn Shows initiated in 1910 and the State Boys' and Girls' Agricultural and Industrial Expositions of 1911 to 1914 that replaced the Corn Shows.
