In 1909, Chicago publisher William D. Boyce (above) lost his way
in a dense London fog. A boy came to his aid and, after guiding
the man, refused a tip, explaining that as a Scout he would not
take a tip for doing a Good Turn. This gesture by an unknown
Scout inspired a meeting with Robert Baden-Powell, the British
founder of the Boy Scouts. As a result, Boyce incorporated the  
Boy Scouts of America. He also created the Lone Scouts, which
merged with the Boy Scouts of America in 1924.

The Beatles album introducing…THE BEATLES was released in United States
by the Chicago based VEE-JAY label just ten days prior to the release of
