Stacey Cordery recounted the life of Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts of America. Raised in post-Civil War Savannah, Georgia, Daisy Gordon attempted to balance her aristocratic upbringing with her outside interests. Following her divorce to an Englishman, William Mackay Low, Ms. Low befriended Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts, and with the assistance of Mr. Baden-Powell’s sister created the Girl Guides. Ms. Low would eventually change the name to the Girl Scouts of America; an organization that its founder believed should be a fun and instructive place for girls to obtain skills useful to their personal lives and careers. Stacey Cordery spoke at the National First Ladies' Library in Canton, Ohio, as part of a day-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the first Girl Scout meeting Ms. Low called in Savannah on March 12, 1912. She used numerous slides during her presentation and responded to questions from members of the audience. close
