RE: HISTORY REQUESTS
BSA has published several books on the history. One (which I do not have)
was published on the 50th anniversary of scouting. The other was published
on the 75th anniversary of scouting. The latter was done in 1984 and may
still be available in some places.
Other sources of history at the "OLD TIMERS". We have one who is quoted in
the 75th anniversary book, "The Boy Scouts, An American Adventure".
This old timer, Otis Chidester, runs a Scouting museum here in Tucson. I
beleive he has been in Scouting something like 70 years. If you are
interested, I may be able to get his address and you can correspond with
A last idea I have for history on Scouting is the SCOUTING magazine. This
has a column (1 to 2 pages) every issue called "The Way It Was".
