This is a fabulous photo!!! Where did you find it? Are there more of Esatman's 1928 trip to the U.K. I'm a biographer of Eastman and this really solidifies the fundamental role he played in the Indian elements in the original Boy Scouts of America, but also through Eastman's influence on Seton and Seton's influence on Baden-Powell, to the British Boy Scouts.

This is a fabulous photograph! Where did you find it? Do you have others of Eastman with Baden-Powell or Eastman's trip to England in 1928. I love it. It's so significant, really solidifying Eastman's relationship with the BSA and international BS.

It is a great photo, but I'm afraid I really can't remember where I found it. Most of the images I post have been gathered over many years. I'm sorry I can't help you. Good luck with your biographical work!
