The White House Historical Association

In addition to the titles “commander-in-chief” and “Mr. President,” every U.S. president since 1910 has held another honorary designation: Honorary President of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

The American branch of the Boy Scouts was founded in 1910 as part of a worldwide scouting movement that had begun in Britain several years earlier. President William Howard Taft was the first to accept the position as honorary president, in order to “sustain a similar relation to the movement as does King George…in England and Lord Grey in Canada.” President Woodrow Wilson followed suit when he took office in 1913, and every subsequent chief executive has done the same since.

Presidents have hosted and spoken at a number of Boy Scout events over the last 109 years. The first annual meeting of the National Council of the BSA was held in the East Room of the White House in 1911, at the invitation of President Taft. The Boy Scouts’ first National Jamboree, held in Washington, D.C., in 1937, culminated in a parade reviewed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

In this photograph, Roosevelt pins an Eagle Scout award on a scout from Troop #7 of Poughkeepsie, New York. Since then, presidents have often traveled to speak at jamborees or sent recorded messages, and it has become tradition to invite the current president to the event.

As the organization has grown, an ever-increasing number of presidents have held other scouting titles before serving as Honorary President, whether as a Cub Scout or Eagle Scout or Scoutmaster. The first Boy Scout president was John F. Kennedy, who had been a member of Troop #2 in Bronxville, New York, from 1929 to 1931.

Gerald Ford is still the only Eagle Scout to have become president, and it’s hard to say which honor mattered more to him. “I don't think there was a prouder moment in my life than when I was privileged to become an Eagle Scout,” he said in a speech in 1975. By that time, he’d been president for over a year.
