Abstract

Norma Nelson was born in Alcorn, Mississippi on the college campus of Alcorn A & M (now Alcorn State University) where her father was a professor. The family later relocated to Greensboro, North Carolina, when Norma's father took a position as Dean at North Carolina A & T. Norma's mother was a friend of Jane Edna Hunter, the founder of the Phyllis Wheatley Association and was given a job as a dietitian in the cafeteria. Due to this relationship, Norma and her sister attended Camp Mueller three times, the first two times with their mother and the last time as a junior camp counselor. Norma remembers her camp experience fondly and recounts certain details about the camp and other campers she re-met later in her life.
