Okay....here's from the copy of the first BSA handbook, first edition (1911)
in the backside of the handbook:
"Boy Scout Shoes"
"Joseph M. Herman and Co., of Boston, the world famous manufacturers of
Herman's U.S. Army Shoes, the kind the soldiers, sailors, marines and
militia wear, have created the most confortable and best wearing shoe for
boys that ever was known. It is made on the sensible orthopedic last
designed by army surgeons. The regular army stamp is on these shoes and so
is the official Boy Scout seal. Look for these marks when buying. The
genuine U.S. Army - Boy Scout shoe is made of Shrewsburg leather with
double sole of solid oak leather reinforced so that it cannot break away.
The upper has a cool lining and is soft and pliable. This is not only the
best shoe for wear that a boy can put on but is handsome and snappy -- one
that any boy will be proud to show to his friends. Be sure to mention your
size when ordering."
The address is posted below. Great question, Rich.....I'll post my response
for the rest of your comments tomorrow (Friday). Have a GREAT Thanksgiving,
Rich and everyone!!
