Scouting through the Decades

Founded in 1910, the American Boy Scouts was patterned after the British organization that had formed two years earlier. Over the years uniforms, merit badges, equipment, and publications have been revised numerous times. This exhibit is a comprehensive overview of the history of the organization and shows how the Boy Scouts have changed since the forerunner organizations, and in each decade since its founding. This extensive collection has been assembled by the Segerstrom family of Baltic, Connecticut.
