BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA FORMED ON THIS DATE IN 1910

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.
