British military officer and founder of the world scouting movement (1857–1941). TLS signed “Baden-Powell,” one page, 8 x 10, Boy Scouts Association letterhead, December 16, 1932. Letter to Professor L. P. Jacks. In part: “I hope you will not think it very presumptious [sic] of me, but knowing your interest in our doings in the Boy Scout movement, I write at the request of our Headquarters Committee to ask whether you would be disposed to become a member of our Council. This would not involve you in any financial responsibility or special work but it would put you in a position to give us suggestions as they may occur to you and would enable us from time to time to ask your advice when occasion arises. I enclose herewith for your information a copy of our last Annual Report [not present] which gives the list of members of the existing Council, and from which you will also see that the Movement is in a healthy and flourishing condition.” Small edge separation to central horizontal fold, paperclip impression to top edge, and a bit of light creasing to right side, otherwise fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
