ABOUT THIS COLLECTION

I have been collecting photographs of B-P, as well as copies of his own writings, drawings, and paintings for about 15 years. Many of the originals come directly from editions of Baden-Powell's writings, or from the archives of the British Scout Association (U.K.) and the Boy Scouts of America. The photos and drawings presented in this gallery have been collected from a wide variety of sources. Many of them appear in several different works (such as several well-known photo of B-P at Brownsea Island).
