A president’s busy schedule means he can’t always receive the Boy Scouts of America’s annual Report to the Nation himself.
But over the years, the BSA’s scheduled Washington visit and the commander in chief’s travel schedule have aligned.
Below I’ve gathered photos of presidents receiving the report. There may be more out there (if so, let me know!), but these were the ones I could find by digging through the BSA, Scouting magazine and White House archives.
You’ll see Obama, Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, Eisenhower, Truman and Roosevelt getting their hand-delivered copies of the report.
