Camp Fire Girls -- Rare, Original, Vintage Broadside From Their Earliest Days. Large broadside, 19 x 12". Printed in red on thin paper. Linen backed. From the earliest days of the Camp Fire Girls, a group started in 1910 in Thetford, Vermont, but formally organized in 1912. The group was formed after local girls found themselves left out of the community's 150th aniversary celebration, unlike the local Boy Scouts. Luther Halsey Gulick, M.D., and his wife Charlotte took up the young ladies' cause, creating a group similar to the Boy Scouts but calling it Camp Fire Girls. The First Festival celebrated the discovery of fire and was held in 1911, thus the "Repeated!" in the title of this broadside. This is definitely one of the earliest, separately-printed references, and perhaps the first broadside referring to the group. OCLC notes a single copy of a four-page songbook for the 1912 event (Brown University), but no mention of this broadside or any other publication about the group before 1912. Great eye appeal! Estimated Value $500 - UP
