Lady From Savannah The Life of Juliette Low.

Inscribed by Daisy Gordon Lawrence:

Daisy’s aunt, Juliette Gordon Low – also known as “Daisy” to family and friends – was the founder of the “Girl Scouts of America. Juliette was inspired to start the organization during a trip to the United Kingdom in early 1912. When she returned to Savannah in March, she resolved to create a new type of sorority for girls modeled on the Boy Scout movement she’d witnessed and so admired in England. On March 12, 1912, at a “Girl Scout” party at Juliette’s Savannah home, her niece Daisy was the first to sign the new organization’s membership register. The rest, as they say, is history.

In its November 22, 1948 issue, LIFE – a magazine as proudly and forthrightly patriotic as the Girl Scouts themselves – ran a feature titled, “The First Girl Scout.” In a reprise, check out LIFE’s The First Girl Scout: Portraits of Daisy Gordon Lawrence.

Daisy remained active in the GSA for years; in 1958 she co-authored a book on her aunt, titled Lady of Savannah: The Life of Juliette Low. Daisy Gordon Lawrence died in Seattle in 1982.”

The book has some shelf wear to it. Please see the photos.
