    Whilst not able to totally agree with comment 1 certainly BSA should be listed; after the falling out with West in 1915 he returned and was with BSA till at least 1926 and I am sure after that date.

    BSA needs to be listed here. Granted there was a falling out…..but those of us (especially us Eagle Scouts) who are grateful for his contributions, revere his name and teach our young ones his legacy….will always honor his memory. He was the Heart of Scouting…and will always be The Chief to me.
