I thougth some of the people on this list might be interested in the
following magazines. They deal with Scouting History, Memorablilia, Collection
and so on. They mainly focus on Scouting in the US, so may not be of much
interest to others (sorry).
PO Box 1121
Manchester NH 03105
(subscriptions- US 1yr $5, 2yr $10, 3yr $12
Foreign 1yr $9US, 3yr $25US)
This is a long lived magazine on scouting memorabilia. It was started
by Harry Thorsen (founder of Scouts on Stamps) and was turned over to
the Lawrence L Lee Scouting Museum in New Hamphire a few years back.
Its published 5 times. It is about 8 pages long, usually publishing
(or reprinting) neat little articles & photos. Some times original articles.
The variety is VERY eclectic. Sometimes an issue will be devoted to an
entire article. Have seen issues on Scout Knives, Scouting & the Salvation
Army, Sea Scouting, etc. This should be its 28th year of publication.
One of my favorites!
Journal of Scouting History
c/o Nelson Block
3700 1st City Tower
Houston, TX 77002-6797
(subscriptions- US $5 1yr; Canada $7.50US 1 yr, Foreign $10US 1yr)
A new journal published semiannually. Nice mag (but a little late :).
Very high quality, each issue so far has been more-or-less devoted to
a single person. #1 was on Seton, #2 was on Green-Bar Bill, #3 on
E. Urner Goodman (founder of Order of the Arrow). However, there are
articles on other matters in each issue, as well as a book review
Scouting Collectors Quarterly
National Scouting Collectors Society
806 E Scott St,
Tuscola IL 61953
(dues- US $12/yr; Canada $13US/yr; other $23US/year)
This magazine is put out by one of the scouting collector groups
(another is American Star put out by ASTA, which I have not seen).
Nice magazine, but as I'm not into stuff like CSP (Council Shoulder
Patches) or Lodge flaps, sometimes I have to wait for the next
issue for stuff that interests me. HOWEVER, there has been some neat
stuff. I first heard of Firecrafters from an article here, in the
early issues there was a series of articles on other youth groups in
the US like Junior Birdman and United States Boy Scout. One problem
is the long time editor, Prince Watkins, passed away a few years back.
The editor is now Al Hoogeveen, publisher of Arapaho. For some reason
issues are always late.
