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.
This edition of Boys' Life,
BTW, is the one that Ralphie Parker is shown reading in bed in the movie
A Christmas Story.
Vol. XXIX, No. 1
BTW, contrary to Ralphie Parker's copy in A Christmas Story, there was not a Red Ryder BB
gun advertisement on the back cover.
January 1939 Boys' Life back cover - it did not have a Red Ryder BB gun ad!
