PRESERVE  •  RESTORE  •  CRESCENT BAY HISTORICAL PROJECT

            Scouting on the westside of Los Angeles got its start in October, 1910, when twelve boys formed as the American Boy Scouts of Santa Monica. By the start of 1922, the American Boy Scouts had disappeared and there were nine troops of the Boy Scouts of America on the westside. Crescent Bay District Council formed on January 12, 1922 with 194 Scouts and $6,500 in pledges from local businessmen. George G. Bechtel served as the first Council President and Scoutmaster Donald Monroe was hired as the first Scout Executive. Communities represented included Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Culver City, Venice, Ocean Park, Sawtelle (Brentwood/West Los Angeles), Sherman (West Hollywood prior to 1925), Inglewood, Hermosa Beach, Hawthorne, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Hyde Park, Palms and Lawndale.
           The southern communities within the Council including Inglewood, Hawthorne, Lawndale, El Segundo, Hyde Park, Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo Beach, split off to form their own Council in 1925, quickly merging into Los Angeles Council in 1927. Scouting within the remaining communities of Crescent Bay Council flourished until 1972 when it merged with the San Fernando Valley Council to form Great Western Council. Today, the former Crescent Bay Council is a district of Western Los Angeles County Council.

           During its fifty-plus year history, the scouts from Crescent Bay distinguished themselves and their Council as among the best in the United States. In the 1920's, they almost became the wealthiest Boy Scout Council in the country. Their camps offered some of the most unique and finest camping experiences anywhere. The Council's scouts and supporters were leaders in all fields, including business, the professions, sports, and even as advisers to U.S. Presidents. Crescent Bay members went on to leadership roles in professional scouting including ascending to the position of Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America.

There are four ways to navigate through the Crescent Bay Council web site:
 
  •  SUBJECT TABS  - found to the left, these khaki green tabs are set up by subject:  Council, Camps, Order of the Arrow, Training, Troops etc. When you pass your cursor over a tab, more  BROWN TABS  will display allowing you to further narrow your search.  SUBJECT TABS  display on the left of every page. While the site is under construction, pages that are still being developed will display as empty.                                                                                                                                                                                                  
  • Page Finder INDEX - found below, the Page Finder Index is organized by the type of information you are looking for such as patches, histories, lists, photos, documents etc. Click on any topic to go directly where you want. The Page Finder INDEX  link displays in the upper right corner of every page.                                                                                                                                           
  •  What's New   - found to the right, lists all pages and items posted to the web site by date with the newest items at the top. Click on any item to go there directly.                                                                                                             
  •   Search   - found in the gray header bar at the top of this page, allows you to type in a person's name, your troop or any specific subject you want to see. All pages within this site that match your search will display. If no pages match, try searching for fewer words or less specific terms.
 
About the Images

          There are currently over five thousand images plus video within the Crescent Bay Council web site. Care has been taken to reproduce the memorabilia, photos and documents allowing for detailed, high-resolution, display. 

          While the majority of images are easily viewed directly on the screen, you may occasionally want a closer look. Viewers of the site have reported on various ways to magnify images and read documents that may not seem readable at first glance.  Users that have touch-screen capabilities on their computers or pads can blow-up the pages directly on their screens. Firefox® users can "right click" on any image and then click "view image" to open a larger image in a new window. Many computer systems have a Zoom function to view the screen at 150% and 200%. Apple® users can use their normal touch-screen zoom function. It is also possible to copy images and paste them into Microsoft Word®, thereby allowing for magnification as may be required.

 
About the Crescent Bay Historical Project

            The Project is the result of more than fifty years of data and memorabilia collecting and preservation by a small group of scouting historians, all with memories of their younger days as Boy Scouts in the Crescent Bay Area Council. The images pictured are part of the collection and archive assembled by Dr. Jeff Morley from 1965 through the present. Special thanks go out to Bill Topkis, whose advice and help in locating and acquiring items for the collection and archive have been invaluable.

                          

           Acknowledgments are also due to the former Scouts of Crescent Bay Area Council whose efforts have helped preserve the history of scouting on the westside of Los Angles and whose generous gifts of memorabilia, documents and photos have contributed to the building of the Crescent Bay Council Archive.
