​​Visions of Scouting

Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941)
Daniel Carter Beard grew up hearing stories of pioneer days and exploring the woods near his Covington, Ky., home. After attending art school in New York City, he began a long career as a writer and illustrator.

One winter day in New York, Beard came across newsboys sleeping on the damp pavement of Printing House Square. It was this sight that “started me on my lifelong crusade for American boyhood,” he later wrote.

In 1905, in the pages of Recreation magazine, Beard created a loosely organized boys’ program he called the Sons of Daniel Boone. Somewhere between 2,000 and 20,000 boys joined the group in the next few years, organizing themselves in “forts” and “stockades” and taking on the names of heroes such as Daniel Boone (president), Kit Carson (treasurer) and Davy Crockett (secretary). When Beard joined Pictorial Review magazine, he renamed the group the Boy Pioneers of America and published its first handbook.

With the advent of the BSA, Beard shut down his nascent organization and joined the BSA as one of the first national commissioners.

“Uncle Dan,” as he was known, remained involved in Scouting until his death in 1941 — even showing up at the 1937 National Scout Jamboree to light the opening campfire with flint and steel. He was honored with one of the first Silver Buffalo Awards in 1926.
