“Children sometimes ask, “What was it like in the old days?” Many answers can be found in this first Girl Scout Handbook used by the great-grandmothers of today’s Girl Scouts, who pioneered the excitement and experience of Girl Scouting. ….. It is a complete, unedited copy of the first of many handbooks used to guide the rapid growth of the movement from the original eighteen members to the millions of members today.”
W. J. Hoxie was born in Rochester, New York, in 1848. In 1912, he became instrumental in the organization of the Girl Scouts with founder Juliette Low. Throughout his career, he served as a teacher, a surveyor, the proprietor of a taxidermy shop, a writer, and much more. He died in 1934 in Saint Petersburg, Florida, at age 86.
