We ALL know the story of the beads and how they came about.
We ALL know that Lord Baden-Powell wore them.
We also know that certain sets were awarded without course work.
We all (?) know that Lady Baden-Powell was given AT LEAST one set.
We know that Agnes Baden-Powell (Lord B-P's sister) was awarded a set. She
was the originator of Girl Guides until Olave came into the picture.
Question: The founder of Girl Scouts of America is Juliette Low. She met
several times with B-P prior to marriage and also with B-P and Olave
afterwards. Reportedly was very close to the B-Ps.
Was she ever awarded a set?
