192 Beard, Daniel Carter (1850-1941). American illustrator who founded the Sons of Daniel Boone which later merged with the Boy Scouts of America. TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY DANIEL C. BEARD AS CHIEF OF THE DAN BEARD OUTDOOR SCHOOL TO THE 17-YEAR OLD SCOUT SEYMOUR HALPERN, WHO WOULD LATER BE ELECTED TO THE U.S. CONGRESS.
Suffern, New York, September 22, 1930. 1930. Good Signed
Suffern, New York, September 22, 1930.. 1930.. Good. - Over 88 words typed on buff 11 inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide "The Dan Beard Outdoor School" stationery with the names of the school's officers and its motto printed in green at the top and its eagle logo at the center. In his letter addressed to "Dear Scout Halpern", Daniel Carter Beard apologizes that while Seymour Halpern's letter has been found, the picture he'd included hasn't: "Your letter of June 23d was mislaid during the transfer of the office from here to camp and also the picture you sent was lost.... The Chief hopes the enclosed print [Not here present] taken at the Jamboree will take its place." Beard goes on to describe the accomplishments of Scouting. Signed "Daniel C. Beard / Chief". The edges of the page are slightly darkened and there are a few tiny chips to the edges with some minor creases and a couple of tiny chips out from the bottom corners and edge. Good.

The son of the artist James Henry Beard, Daniel Carter "Uncle Dan" Beard [1850-1941] was an American illustrator, author, youth leader and social reformer. He founded the Sons of Daniel Boone in 1905, which he later merged with the Boy Scouts of America. He wrote a series of articles for St. Nicholas magazine, which later became the basis of his book "The American Boy's Handy Book". A member of the Art Students League, he was a friend of Ernest Thompson Seton. As an artist, he illustrated several books for Mark Twain.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.

Moving in to The Haste House, a campus housing unit, he continued to contribute cartoons to The Pelican and published three underground comic books, Lenny of Laredo (a satire based on Lenny Bruce), Marching Marvin and The Profit.
