The Boy Scouts of America has published Boys' Life since January 1, 1911. I received it for a couple years in the late 1960s while in the Scouts. I have begun buying copies on eBay to look for useful articles. As time permits, I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged. Here are the Boys' Life issues I have so far.

Bell Telephone Company played an important role in the development of the aviation industry by providing communications systems for airlines. As intimated in this promotion in Boys' Life magazine, in 1961, Bell introduced the "air-ground-air" radio system, which allowed pilots to communicate directly with air traffic controllers on the ground, improving safety and efficiency in air travel. This system was a major technological advancement, as it replaced the earlier system of communicating via Morse code, which was slow and prone to errors. The air-ground-air system allowed pilots to communicate in real-time with controllers, enabling faster and more accurate instructions for takeoff, landing, and navigating airspace. Bell Telephone Company continued to innovate in the aviation industry, introducing new technologies such as satellite-based navigation systems and weather radar systems, which have greatly improved air travel safety and efficiency.
