U.S. #974 features Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Guides, which later became the Girl Scouts of America. Low is pictured along with the Girl Scouts emblem.
 
Low was a member of a prominent family in Georgia and married Englishman William Mackay Low in 1886.  During the wedding, a piece of rice thrown in celebration lodged in her ear and punctured her eardrum, resulting in loss of hearing. In 1911, several years later after the death of her husband, Low met Sir Robert Baden Powell, who had recently founded the Boy Scouts. Low became an enthusiastic supporter, and after returning to the U.S. in 1912, she placed a phone call to her cousin, saying, “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!”
 
The first gathering took place on March 12, 1912, with 18 girls present. The first registered member of the American Girl Guides was Margaret Gordon, Juliette’s niece. The next year, the name was changed to Girl Scouts. 
 
This stamp was issued in Savannah, Georgia, Low’s hometown. Her birthplace was named the first National Historic Landmark in Georgia, and currently serves as a museum owned by the Girl Scouts.
