Good question. Just did a quick search on the web and couldn't find the answer. There was a thread on this subject on the gathering back in 1997 from Theodore Wood. He never really resolved it either.
I always thought it was Wolf's Pond and named after someone, but I have no recollection of what I based that assumption on. It may have been just that - an assumption.
Do I have some memories of that place. As a little kid (NYFD picnics in the late 40's and early 50's) and as a teenager (just hangin' out or going there with my girlfriend in the mid to late 50's).
