Audio clip: Lyman Reed

Lyman Reed and his fellow Bryan Boy Scouts collected vast amounts for paper drives:

Lyman Reed: Yeah, we were always having various drives and all. With Boy Scouts and all, we were very active in paper drives. The Boy Scout location was in the garage of a former funeral home. It was about a three- or four-hearse size garage. We would have it filled up, shoulder-high, with newspaper and magazines and things like that before the collection people would come to take it away. Wed have our meetings sitting on piles of magazines. Also, there was metal drives, where we were looking for all kinds of scrap metals.
