Scouting Pathfinder - Daniel Carter Beard

 

I told you last week about Ernest Thompson Seton, who was one of the earliest leaders of the Boy Scouts of America. Another important leader of the BSA in those days was Daniel Carter Beard. He was an illustrator and writer of boys' books. In 1902, ____ years ago he started an organization for boys called the Sons of Daniel Boone.

It was a pretty informal organization. Mostly he promoted it by writing magazine articles and letters to boys. But the Sons of Daniel Boone were forerunners of Boy Scouts, and Beard became one of the main leaders of Scouting Let's honor Dan Beard with our patrol calls. (Each patrol gives call)
