  16. Channeling Whittlin Jim says:

    A quick question that might take some research…

    There are several “Slide of the Month” articles in the 70’s without a byline. (i.e. “Pedro’s Lucky Shoe” July, 1972, page 51)

    Do you have any idea who authored these segments?

  17. P38fan says:

    My daughter is a graduate student in Canada and doing research on WWI childhood in Canada. She sent me this link. I used to get this magazine as a boy in Detroit. It is too cool!

  18. Scouting101 says:

    Awesome! (Almost) Every issue since 100 years ago. Great.

  19. eragon 1210 says:

    Who here agrees it would be awesome to make this an app for the ipod/iphone…. say I

  20. Mark says:

    This is really great! My son and I went back and looked at some of the issues during World War II in particular, which really spoke to the times. Can you download different issues in PDF format?

  21. channeling whittlin jim says:

    Where is December 1966?

  22. jayhay says:

    how do yu use it?

  23. north_al_80s_scout says:

    I’m loving this. One of my favorite parts of being a scout was getting ‘Boys Life’. Now, I’m getting to go back and read the stories that used to inspire me thirty years ago. This is especially cool now that I’m a scout leader in my son’s troop.

  24. LEGOlover301 says:

    jan. 2003 is so cool!(that was the year i was born.)

  25. Starman says:

    For ears I wondered how the three astronauts in “Space Conquerors” had been stranded on the Moon. The realistic series prompted me to become an engineer and choose aerospace as my career. I never considered the idea that they had volunteered for a one way flight to establish the first Lunar Base. Bravo for courage and hopefully we can beat their date of 4 July 2057.

  26. bucket says:

    i love the way back machine

  27. Scout from the 80's says:

    Now after many years, I can read the whole White Mountains series. I aged out in 1984 and never saw how the series ended. I looked forward every month to reading it.

    • A Sweet Brown Okie says:

      The White Mountain Trilogy was great. I finally got to finish it thanks to this site. Whoever came up with this idea was a genius, and I thank them very much. You can’t beging to understand the joy this has brought me. I have emailed this link to our local council office and my pack committe chairperson so that they can spread the word.

  28. antiIphone says:

  33. peter says:

    does this mean that i can get rid of all those old Boys’ Life magazines?

  34. Cowboy says:

    Kudos to Boys’ Life Mag! Happy 100!

  35. achowalogen says:

    Did Mr. Peabody give you guys a license for his machine?

  36. oldkat says:

    I finally found the issue I was looking for! May 1966 was when my love for wilderness survival began with the article on page 30. I now teach Wilderness Survival and Camping merit badges at my sons troop 40 years and two Philmont Treks later.

  43. Scott says:

    You need to make a widget of this so that Scout Units can put it on their websites!
