TRM and TRS exist for both.  The Amaquonsippi style patches were for the staff.  Their use started in XXXX and continued till about 1972.  The Camp Lowden ones may have been pre-1960 or before there was consideration of making a patch universally useable at Northwoods.  The Blackhawk Area Council versions were used at Camp Lowden and at Northwoods.  All of the Staff were issued the Camp Staff patch and Camp Staff nametag.  The Camp Director and his other directors who attended National Camping School were issued Camp Leader patches and Camp Master nametags.
