    No about about 1948.

    Some aren't aware Myron Avery was the 1st 2000 miler, more than 10 years earlier.

    YES, and we have one of Avery's measuring wheels in the Museum exhibit at ATC Harpers Ferry ( he used it to measure as he marked the AT ) and Benton's hat !

    MUSEUM TABLE at ALDHA HIKER RECEPTION BIG HIT ! ! !

    The digital pics were available at the Museum's table to a steady crowd of hikers ( older and young ) ~~ they go back all the way to 1979 ! The Museum's Vice-president and curator, Theresa Harley-Wilson organized the entire venue from seeking and getting a $30,000 grant from Burt's Bees through the entire process of scanning and digitizing all the pics she could find taken of hikers through ATC Headquaters, Harpers Ferry, through the years ! ~~ this venue is a fine example of what we at the Museum are trying to do . The Museum table helped make the Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association's Hiker Reception the SPLASH HIT is was with the hiker community last Friday at Trail Days 2010. ~~~~ see the attachment for a more detail report of the reception.
