Founder's Day

Today is the birthday of General Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, Lord of Gilwell, born this day in 1857, who went on to found the worldwide Scouting movement. A website dedicated to his life and work can be found here.

(And while we're at it, today we remember two other founders; Americans remember George Washington, our nation's first President and "father of our country," while Catholics remember the Feast of the Chair of St Peter on the Roman calendar. Well, they weren't really founders in the strict sense, but they got there first, okay?)
