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.

BTW, contrary to Ralphie Parker's copy in A Christmas Story, there was not a Red Ryder BB gun advertisement on the back cover.
