New link added to the Base Camp

January 3, 2008 Glenn Chase Base Camp


While researching information about a 1919 Boy Scout Handbook for a coworker I came across an excellent site that I immediately knew belonged on The Scout Patch Collector’s Base Camp.

History of the Boy Scout Handbook is actually part of the web site for Troop 97 of Fort Collins, Colorado. Scoutmaster Jeff Snowden has compiled a vast amount of information and pictures of every single edition’s cover in a well-organized and enjoyable site that is sure to be appreciated by anyone seeking to learn about the book most every Scout has studied, dog-eared, and marked off their advancement in. You’ll find it linked in the Scout History and Museums section of the Base Camp starting today.

The picture above is the cover of the edition I read cover-to-cover to learn the Scout Promise, Scout Law, how to pitch a tent, tie the correct knot, and so much more.
