    Boy Scouts Jamboree Washington, D.C. (Boy Scouts of America, 1937). One Sheet (27.5" X 42").
    This spectacular poster is notable for several reasons, with the incredible art of Norman Rockwell being at the top of the list. Rockwell's prolific partnership with the Scouts lasted more than 50 years, with his iconic images of Boy Scouts becoming engrained in the American psyche. In 1938, Rockwell was awarded the Silver Buffalo by the Boy Scouts of America, the highest award the organization can give for "Distinguished Service to Boyhood." The 1st National Jamboree, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America was to be held in Washington, D. C., in August of 1935. With much elaborate planning for this historic event, and Scouts all across the nation eagerly anticipating their exciting journey, the event would not take place as planned, due to an outbreak of polio early in the summer. It was rescheduled, and finally came to fruition in the summer of 1937 as this poster advertises. Minor edge wear, light stain in the top right border, and small tears in the right and top border with archival tape on the verso. None of the minimal wear detracts from this masterpiece of Americana. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.
