Gypsy Moth Scout 

Joel Gordes

Inspired by recent discussion on gypsy moth infestations, one of our members was reminded of a song he wrote, originally published in a newsletter of the Greater Hartford Folk Music Society. It was inspired by his close friend and neighbor, a Gypsy Moth Scout, working for the forerunner of DEEP in the 1930’s.
