wow! I have not seen anything like it espeshaly the air planes
this thing is reallly cool…… like starscout said though they need to get all the issues in
needs 2009 and 2010, as well as 2011
NEVER GIVE UP
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH LEX
What happened to “Think & Grin” That is the mpst important page in Boys’ Life.
I received that addition in the Mail! Ha Ha guess how old I am? Buy the way, I took the Scout law seriously. Guess what I do for a living?
what i need is in 2009 and its not in there
one word AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t care if spelled Wrong.
make an ipod app
This is SOOOOOOOOOOO cool!!!!!!!!
This is way cool!!!!!!
needs to be an app for Ipod
This is great for a scout to look back and see how Scouting has grown
i like SPACE CONQUERS
Just kidding my best friend is going to be in it though
I am in the March 2011 issue ( hope it is going to be good)
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?
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!
Awesome! (Almost) Every issue since 100 years ago. Great.
Who here agrees it would be awesome to make this an app for the ipod/iphone…. say I
That would be awesome! I would get that!
This thing is pretty cool…. of course….. if you are a 15 year old girl like me…… its pretty cool to see this
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?
Hi Mark … unfortunately the Wayback Machine doesn’t allow downloads or printing at this time. Maybe someday …
Where is December 1966?
The archive is still missing a few issues, but they should be added soon.
how do yu use it?
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.
jan. 2003 is so cool!(that was the year i was born.)
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.
i love the way back machine
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.
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.
I hope theres some left…..
i like it
Is there any way to print out pages?
This is great!
Makes me fee like I’m 13 again!
does this mean that i can get rid of all those old Boys’ Life magazines?
Kudos to Boys’ Life Mag! Happy 100!
Did Mr. Peabody give you guys a license for his machine?
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.
Wayback Machine more like a Way Cool Machine!
This is better than a time machine
it needs to tell when th 1st issue was made
The first issue was March 1911. Make sure you check out the 100th anniversary issue in March 2011.
AWESOME! I tried this and it is so cool! Now I can look at editions like from when I was born!
how does this work
You need to make a widget of this so that Scout Units can put it on their websites!
I love it, very cool.
I agree with lex, I just tried it and it’s awesome!
i think the way back machine is the coolest thing on the sight
You are sooooo right!!!
It was between 69 and 73.
