Is there any purpose in keeping old cub and boy scout training materials - books and handouts etc.

 

 There is everything from Wood Badge on down.  Including old cubsout and boyscout basic leader training. I see various books for commissions, committee members, Webelos and even original Tiger Cub leader.

  You the idea there is close 100 years of combined collections.  If no need for them - off they go to recycling as we need the space.

 

Can anyone help?  I will give lists on request and will send for the cost of shipping.

Some materials are irreplaceable in that the materials today do not hold a candle to the old stuff. When I did ITOLS a few years back, I handed out additional info from older materials.  PM me if you want to get rid of it. I may have a home.

There are a number of Boy Scout museums that would love to go through your papers to see if they would add to their collections. Training materials are especially useful in tracing BSA policy on various topics.  I am in NE Ohio and there are four Scout museums within an hour of where I am sitting, each operated by volunteers who elect to work, at least in part, on the district or council level to preserve the history of Scouting.

Any materials museum worthy have already been donated.

  These are course syllabuses from the 80's and 90's.

   There is a Boy Scout round table program guide that has a lot of hand outs.

So they are decades old.  Might still be of interest.
