In 1921. M a rjorie M e rriw e a ther Post and E.F. H u tton purchased Camp Topridge, lo c a t­ ed on Upper St. Regis Lake. The camp shares one lake with several fam ilies , but com p letely encompases two oth e r lakes. During her first marriage, Marjorie had vis­ ited the area and after purchasing Topridge during her second m a rriage she expanded the camp to its fo r ty buildings, Including th irty guest cabins. It was m o s tly used during the summ e rs and guests would be flown in on her private plane from New York and Washington, D C. She always had a full staff o f servants I here and she entertained lavishly. When M a rjorie Post died in 1973 the State purchased the camp and m a n y o f the antiques went to museums. Today Topridge is still in use. In the fall o f 1982 the Governor stayed there and entertained. Topridge is special to Paul Sm ith's because it is our students and faculty that cater the functions at Camp Topridge. They work eigh­ teen hour days in the kitchen preparing food and out front serving with style. Topridge p ro ­ vides another, excellent training ground of high caliber for the students of Paul Sm ith's College, No student, having worked there, will ever forget the unique and exciting Camp To­ pridge.
