Lone Scouts, 1910s
The Lone Scouts of America was in existence in the late 1910s and 1920s in the days before Cub Scouts. The Lone Scouts consisted of boys who had not yet reached the age of twelve and therefore could not join the boy Scouts. Pictured in the 1921 photo of the “Tiger Tribe” are; Front row: JimmyGilbert, Lawrence Comstock, Kenneth Post, Milton Williams, and Richard Wellington. Back row: M. Burns, Frances Beedon, and Robert McCulloch. Beedon was the group leader.
