Between disinterest and myth, lots of work remains to get a clear history.  Old newspaper files are a great source.

David Scott has been a regular contributor here for many years.  We've missed him recently.

Yes, that is Mr. David C. Scott. I have contacted him on his e-mail address (found  on his official web site), and he was so kind to reply me on my e-mail and to write his messege here, too.


I've read his last two. Good reads. The one quoted above I liked the best so far.

Also the account that signed off as David Scott was registered on the forum in 1999.  :happy:

I see that we have a debate going..yes that was me. I'm not writing anything currently but published a best-selling book on a century of BSA heroism last year for Michael S. Malone titled Running Toward Danger. It should be in your local Scout Shop as the National Supply Division is distributing it along with Amazon. Else, I'm off to hear Dr. Julie Seton (the granddaughter of Ernest Thompson Seton) at the national Scouting Museum.

Most primates respond well to lab experiments when rewarded with trinkets and beads....

There's a reason why I don't always answer the phone, doorbell or comments on forums.  :)

If Mr. Scott sees this, tell Ms Seton that the Scouts of White Oak District in Maryland say hello, and thank you for the interesting talk!

Unless someone comes forward with another printing attached to at least a few more pages (or even the lowly binding), we may not ever know.

I have a 9 11/16 x 11/15/16 size, six page, folded and stapled on the left, promo piece for The American Boy Scouts ("Plays and Pastimes")[We would say "play" today rather than "plays.]  C.H.Lawrence '12

 

Wonder if yours is the same sort of thing.

I am afraid that I can do anything more... possibly, if could be helpful anyhow, I can make some bigger scans (in higher resolution)... will be glad even to send this card to the right address, if someone would like to investigate.

 

I just planned to frame it and place it on the wall with other prints / paintings / photos I have.

 

@ Tahawk... this could be easily some kind of promo piece... that is even more possible than this is some kind of notebook cover.. because any kind of handbook or instructions will have some title on the front cover. Also, from that time, even notebooks have had a title "Notebook" on the cover + usually some kind of reference number.

 

Is your promo piece also printed on the cardboard or on the ordinary paper?

All pages are paper about like the covers on old Life magazines.

 

C.H.Lawrence (of those days) was a well-established children's illustrator   http://childscapes.c...s/Lawrence.html
