circa 1890-1920, thread and sinew-sewn using glass bead colors of white, dark blue, pea green, red white-heart, and faceted brass; designed with tipis, crosses, and American flags; lined with patterned cotton; Collected by Daniel C. Beard (1850-1941) a Cincinnati native who was best known as one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America. Before receiving his nickname of ÒUncle DanÓ, Beard started his career as a civil engineer, working throughout the Cincinnati area. In 1878, his family relocated to New York City where he attended the Art Student's League and soon began illustrating books for Mark Twain and Ernest Howard Crosby. In 1905, Beard assumed editorship of Recreation, a periodical advocating wildlife conservation. During this time he also founded the Sons of Daniel Boone, an organization promoting outdoor recreation based on American frontier traditions. In 1908 in England, Sir Robert Baden-Powell started what became a fast growing movement called Boy Scouts. Intrigued, Beard decided to merge his Sons of Daniel Boone with the philosophies of Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts and form, in 1910, The Boy Scouts of America. Beard became one of the first National Scout Commissioners of the Boy Scouts and served the organization for 30 years. He maintained a lifelong interest in the outdoors and Native Americans. length 16" x chest 30"
