Greetings from the U.K.
afaik there has only ever been one Chief Scout of the World and that was
Lord Baden-Powell. The title was bestowed on him by acclamation by the 8,000
participants from 33 countries, including the U.S.A. at the first World
Jamboree held at Olympia, London in 1920.
It may be that John's friend met our present Chief Scout, George Purdy.
