I've got the book I mentioned about the 1937--yes, that's right,
1937--jamboree right in front of me. The 1937 jamboree was held June 30
to July 9, 1937, in Washington, DC. The world jamboree that year was
held in Holland, July 31 to August 19, 1937.
It was, in fact, the 1935 jamboree that was cancelled due to a polio
epidemic. I believe our colleague Kathy from Chicago has a 1935 jamboree
patch which she mentioned on this list a year or so ago. it utrned up in
their scout closet, I believe.
Anyway, this is a great book, with fascinating photos.
But, the jamboree was in fact held in 1937.
