Speaking of Camp Napowan, a year or two before I was on staff, there was a chap named “Harry” who was on staff at the camp for a couple years. Harry was from Park Ridge (IL) and attended Maine East High School. Good guy from all accounts. As I recall he worked in the camp store. After graduating from Maine East, Harry attended Ripon College for a year or two but he dropped out and moved to Los Angeles where he had some minor acting roles and worked as a carpenter.
While doing some carpentry work for filmmaker George Lucas, Harry was asked to “read” for a role for a new film that was in the works. So, Harry read for the part – and he got it. Harry played the part of Han Solo in Star Wars. Yes . . . “Harry” who worked at Camp Napowan was Harrison. Harrison Ford. . . .
