1928-1947 Intermediate Girl Scout Uniform

This style uniform was used between 1928 and 1947. It was worn by an intermediate scout – the rank between “Brownie” and “First Class” Girl Scouts.

Originally, there was a red scarf worn with it, and other accessories could include a belt, a dark green basque style hat, and Girl Scout socks. The proficiency badges are worn on the sleeve.

This uniform was manufactured before WWII as the front zipper was replaced with buttons during WWII. It was worn by Carol (Melby Hastings) Fingerson in the mid 1940s.

In honor of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting, a collection of “Girl Scout Uniforms Through the Years” is on exhibit at the Museum now through March.
