Posted: Tuesday, August 24, 2004

A Chautauqua group poses at the Mendenhall Glacier in this photo taken by the Winter & Pond Co. in September 1921. The Chautauqua was a national movement, peaking in the mid-1920s, in which camps were held so that a community could enjoy a series of lectures, musical performances, readings and plays. Theodore Roosevelt once called Chautauqua circuits "the most American thing in America."
