Mountain air appealed to James C. Orr. “Nothing in the world can beat Mount McGregor,” said the 72-year-old Orr, who lived at 115 Barrett St. in Schenectady. Orr was a war veteran who had cardiac problems. A few months at McGregor, a rest camp for veterans in 1955, perked him right up. The country life helped hundreds of other men and women. Mount McGregor had been a haven for veterans since November of 1945.
