NEW HERE Drawn to Rockwell


Corry Kanzenberg says joining the BSA as Curator of Exhibitions and Collections at the National Scouting Museum seemed like a logical next step in her career. Makes sense. Her last gig was as Curator of Archival Collections at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Mass. You might say she knows a thing or two about the most-famous


illustrator in Scouting’s history. “I have a strong interest in American illustration art, so I was really drawn to the Scouting Museum,” says Kanzenberg, who came on board last July. Like most museum curators, Kanzenberg studied art history and painting (at the University of Hartford in Connecticut). She says she’d love to boost attendance at the Scouting Museum, which owns more than 600,000 artifacts related to BSA history. Kanzenberg says she’d also like to bolster the museum’s international Scouting collec- tion. The museum recently acquired an intact 1963 South African Scout uniform with a headband made from the skin of a spotted cat—a legal no-no these days.

receive access to MLS matches, players, coaches, and executives through unique on- and off-field programming designed specifically for Scout packs, troops, teams, and crews. The plans include:


In-game ceremonies at MLS stadiums to honor Scout units that complete community service.


Special “Scout Nights” at matches to help local councils achieve recruiting and retention goals.


Discussions between MLS players and Scouts on topics such as fitness and leadership.
