Patrol Leaders Training Troop
May 6, 1922

 by Donald Monroe,
Crescent Bay District Council's
first Scout Executive,

           This detailed program outlining everything a young Scout would need to become an effective leader of his peers, within the Patrol, Troop and life. It was assembled within months of the creation of the Council and served as a template for over fifty years of training young men through the patrol method.

           Oldest known document within the Crescent Bay Council archive. The Patrol Leader's Book outlined the very first Crescent Bay Camp in Temescal Canyon and ultimately was influential in the scouting experience of thousands of Scouts growing up on the westside of Los Angeles.
