First published in 1911, Boy’s Life is the monthly magazine of the Boy Scouts of America. I have always had an instinctive aversion towards the Boy Scouts and other quasi-militaristic, uniform-based, youth organisations, but I was amazed by the following comment on Wikipedia:

“Writers contributing over the years are Isaac Asimov, Catherine Drinker Bowen, Ray Bradbury, Van Wyck Brooks, Arthur C. Clarke, J. Allan Dunn, Bobby Fischer, Alex Haley, Robert A. Heinlein, William Hillcourt, John Knowles, Arthur B. Reeve, Ernest Thompson Seton, and and Isaac Bashevis Singer.

Noteworthy artists and photographers contributing over the years are Ansel Adams, Harrison Cady, Joseph Csatari, Salvador Dalí, Philippe Halsman, Norman Rockwell, and Jerome Rozen.”

Any magazine that can combine Boy Scouting, Salvador Dalí and Bobby Fischer must have earned its place in any dentist’s waiting room.
