A COLLECTION OF LEGAL DOCUMENTS PERTAINING TO THE USE OF THE WORD "SCOUT" AND A LAWSUIT BY THE BOY SCOUTS AGAINST THE GIRL SCOUTS AND WINCHESTER ARMS FOR USING THE WORD "SCOUT" AS PART OF THEIR NAME AND ON EQUIPMENT 

This collection of typed documents is from the estate of Mark Jones who was an official in the Girl Scouts in the 1920s-30s with his name in pencil at the top of the front cover. The documents are marked "copy" but this might be the only copy left in the world. There are 37 typed sheets all typed on one side of 37 pages bound in a blue folder. 

The Boy Scouts Inc. sued the Girl Scouts Inc. and Winchester Arms over the use of the word "scout" in 1924 claiming it was an infringement on their trademark. 

Also, named in the lawsuit was Winchester Arms which made equipment for the Girl Scouts using the word "scout". The Boy Scouts Inc. also claimed that the use of the name "Girl Scouts" inflicted psychological damage on the boys and the name should be "Girl Guides" as Lord Baden Powell recommended. In fine condition.
