Daniel Beard Autographed Photo

Daniel Carter “Uncle Dan” Beard (June 21, 1850– June 11, 1941) was an American illustrator, author, and social reformer who was one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America. He merged his organization into the Boy Scouts of America when it was founded in 1910. Beard became one of the first National Scout Commissioners of the Boy Scouts and served it for 30 years. The work of both Beard and Ernest Thompson Seton are in large part the basis of the Traditional Scouting movement. Beard also helped his sister organize the Camp Fire Girls and became president of the Camp Fire Club of America. Beard was a Freemason in a New York Lodge, and an award for Masonic Scouters has been named in his honor. Prior to the establishment of the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award, Dan Beard was recipient of the first and only “gold Eagle badge” awarded at the Second National Training Conference of Scout Executives held in 1922 in Blue Ridge, North Carolina.
