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.

JAMES DEAN WAS BORN ON THIS DATE IN 1931

james dean

James Byron Dean is a cultural icon, best thought of as being like the
title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause (1955), in which
he starred as a troubled  teenager, Jim Stark. The other two roles that
made him a star were as Cal Trask in East of Eden (1955), and the farmer, 
Jett Rink, in Giant (1956). Dean’s continued popularity rests on his work
in only these three films, all leading roles. His premature death in car 
crash in 1955 helped establish his legendary status. He was only 24.

James Dean was the first actor to receive a posthumous Academy Award for 
Best Actor and remains the only actor to have had two posthumous acting
nominations. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Dean the 18th best
male movie star on their AFI 100 Years…100 Stars list.
