Girl Scouting in the United States began in 1912 when Juliette Gordon Low formed the first troop in Savannah, Georgia. The Pikesville Poppies, the first Girl Scout troop in Central Maryland, began in Baltimore in 1913. Girl Scouts of Central Maryland includes photographs of Girl Scouts at Camp Bradley between 1920 and 1940, yesteryear's Mariner Scouts, and an array of uniform changes over the decades. It chronicles the evolution of Girl Scouting in the Baltimore area from 1913 to the present with stories both old and new. It also features influential Girl Scouts—from Baltimore author Margaret Dudley, who wrote the Girl Scout–themed book The Rugged Dozen Abroad, to current community leaders, such as Sen. Barbara Mikulski. Women like these capture the spirit and adventure of Girl Scouting that still exist today.
