HISTORY

Juliette Gordon Low, also known as “Daisy” who was born on October 31, 1860, was the founder of Girl Scouts of the USA, along with the help of Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting Movement.   In 1912, Low formed a Girl Guide troop in Savannah Georgia and in 1915, the Girl Guides became the Girl Scouts with Low becoming the first president.  She remained active with the Girl Scouts until the time of her death in 1927.   Low’s birthday, October 31, is celebrated by the Girl Scouts as “Founder’s Day”.
