DANIEL C. BEARD. Third-Person Typed Note signed: "Dan Beard", 1p, 5¾x7¾. Flushing, L.I., New York, 1906 April 12. On his imprinted personal letterhead. In full: "Mr. Dan Beard accepts with pleasure the kind invitation of the Periodical Publisher's Association of America for the annual dinner on the evening of Friday May the Fourth." Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941) illustrated many books (among them the first edition of Mark Twain's Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur's Court) and taught animal drawing. He became interested in work for boys, and his best-known book, The American Boys' Handy Book, was published in 1882. Founder (1910) of the Boy Scouts of America, he served for the remainder of his life as National Scout Commissioner and Chairman of the Court of Honor. To boys all over the country he was known as "Uncle Dan". It was his idea to Americanize the Boy Scout fleur-de-lis by adding the American eagle and shield. Beard received the only Gold Eagle Badge ever awarded. Lightly creased with fold, not at signature. Lightly soiled at blank margins and on verso of integral leaf, red check mark at lower margin. Fine condition.
