Boy Scouts of America

Founding of the Boy Scouts of America


 

In 1909, Chicago publisher William Boyce was visiting London, where he encountered a boy who came to be known as the Unknown Scout. Mr. Boyce was lost on a foggy street when an unknown Scout came to his aid, guiding him to his destination. The boy then refused his tip, explaining that he was a Boy Scout and was merely doing his daily good turn. Interested in the Boy Scouts, Mr. Boyce met with staff at the Boy Scouts Headquarters and, by some accounts, Baden-Powell. Upon his return to the US, Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910 - the date is celebrated as the official birthday of the BSA.
