This one time at band camp…


I shot this photo back in the ‘70s as part of a story I did for The Indianapolis News on the Smith Walbridge Camp at Syracuse, Ind.

The camp offered summer programs for marching bands, flag & rifle units, baton twirlers and drum majors. At the time, it was run by its founders Merl and Margaret Smith.

The Smiths’ son Gary is a retired marching band director from the University of Illinois and runs the Smith Walbridge Clinics at Savoy, Ill.
