Farmington State Normal School (FSNS) classmates Dorothy (Dot) Carville and Lillian Gould were dressed in Camp Fire Girls outfits and posed on Main Street in downtown Farmington. The Camp Fire Girls were the sister organization to the Boy Scouts of America, whose uniforms appropriated the fashion of Native American regalia.
There were several Camp Fire groups at FSNS from 1915 to the 1920s. These women were members of a group sponsored by faculty member Carolyn Stone. Dot and Lillian were also members of the class of 1918.
