Photograph - Photograph
Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low (1860-1927) was the founder of the Girl Scouts of the America. In 1911 Juliette met Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting movement and he recruited her to the Girl Guiding movement. Daisy and Baden-Powell shared a passion for sculpture, poetry and art. She organized a troop in Scotland and two in London before she decided that she would bring the Girl Guides movement to the United States. On returning to America in 1912, Juliette placed her historic telephone call to her cousin, Nina Anderson Pape "Come right over! I've got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we're going to start it tonight!" On March 12, 1912, Daisy gathered 18 girls to register the first troop of American Girl Guides. Daisy was known for being eccentric and charming. She wrote poetry, sketched, wrote and acted in plays, and became a skilled painter and sculptor. She had many pets; dogs, cats, a few horses and she was fond of exotic birds (macaw, a parrot, and Georgia mockingbirds). She was known for her lively sense of humor. Daisy developed breast cancer in 1923, but kept it a secret and continued working for the Girl Scouts. She died in 1927, from the cancer and was buried in her Girl Scout uniform.
