           Oldest and only known stationary from the Council that says Crescent Bay DISTRICT Council. This letter also contains the only known signature of D. Scott Field, the Council's first assistant Scout Executive. Field was from Inglewood, CA. He led the move that split Inglewood, Redondo Beach and other beach communities into their own Council in July, 1925.
           This letter is also significant in that it is the only mention of Crescent Bay's involvement with the Round-the-World flyers circumnavigation in planes built by Donald Douglas Sr.
   
Lists Council officers, directors and executives including
 Donald Douglas (Sr.), E.R. Locke (Harold Locke's father)
and Kenneth Monroe (Donalds Monroe's brother).

Formal Letterhead
11350 Palms Blvd., Los Angeles 66


           When the Council office moved to 11350 Palms Blvd. in West Los Angeles, new stationary was designed similar to that used
 in 1960. As in 1960, the masthead featured the Council officers and a map of the council in the middle of the page. When Council officers and directors changed in succeeding years, new versions of the stationary were printed. This design was used  through
1972 when Crescent Bay merged with San Fernando Valley Council to form Great Western Council.
