Powahay History

A complete history, 22 pages in PDF

Much of the photographs and information for this publication came from my Grandfather, the late Harold B. Scribner and father to Assistant District Commissioner, Charles Scribner.

This booklet is a collection of articles and research from the Internet, local newspapers, old Alfred Dater Council publications, Scouting Magazine, past Council Scouters, and from Chick Scribner.

This publication is dedicated to:
Harold B Scribner
“Mr. Scouting of Darien”

In a resolution dated December 11, 1961, the Alfred W. Dater Council, wrote:
“..for almost half a century, Harold Scribner has given so much of himself to Scouting, to the degree that he became known as “Mr. Scouting of Darien”, serving as Assistant  coutmaster, as Scoutmaster, as District Commissioner (the first in Darien), and in many other capacities, receiving the Silver Beaver Award in 1938… and in addition he has served his country bravely in combat overseas in World War I..”
