“White Bear Lake’s involvement with scow development was natural enough. In fact, Maynard Meyer of Pewaukee later called White Bear the “most recognized center” of Midwest boat building at the turn of the century. Three major boat builders had established shops on her shores—Johnson, Amundson, and Ramaley. Add to the mix Lucius Pond Ordway and Milton Griggs—two gentlemen wealthy enough to finance the development of new boats—and you have the ingredients for an almost explosive era of design experimentation.”

– Dr. Thomas Hodgson, The History of the Inland Lake Yachting Association
