30 Mar 1939 Brainerd Daily Dispatch, Brainerd, MN — AROUND THE TOWN— Jim Davis came into the office the other day to show us a couple of old YMCA membership cards. One was issued to Harry C. Craig, now a resident of Curllsville, Pa., issued March 16, 1889. The other is the property of H.H. Mandell, now of Cleveland, Ohio, and is dated March, 1891. In a letter written to Mr. Davis, Mr. Mandell says that in looking over his diary he notices an entry for the year 1888 which mentions purchase of a membership in the Brainerd organization, but he was unable to find the card. Mr. Mandell left Brainerd 47 years ago and was back here for the first visit in 45 years two years ago. Mr. Craig, in his letter to Mr. Davis, includes with his membership card a time-yellowed, dog-eared program of a musical presentation given by the YMCA Glee club, known in the slang of that day as the "Razzle Dazzle." Both of the cards are signed by A.C. Van Campen as secretary. Van Campen was the second secretary of the YMCA here. The first secretary was a man by the name of Allen.
