The Girl Scouts is an organization founded in 1912, a hundred years ago in the United States, by Juliette Gordon Low who was born in Savannah, Georgia. When my daughter was growing up she first became a member of the Daisy Girl Scouts, then Brownies and Juniors earning her badges. You did know that the Girl Scout motto is “Be prepared,” didn’t you?”
In my collection of old books I found a couple of official handbooks of the Girl Scouts with publication dates of 1926 and 1951.
