Description

This delightful double sided map was issued to participants in the 7th National Jamboree of the Boy Scouts of America, held at Farragut State Park in Idaho. One side of the map shows the state park grounds with various camp activities denoted by symbols within the image. An inset map shows the location of the park in relation to nearby Coeur D’Alene.

The verso presents a broader historical map of the United States, with small illustrations highlighting major milestones across the country. The invention of the telegraph, discovery of gold in California, and rocket launches in Florida are just a few of the events depicted by the charming drawings, signed Brautigam at the bottom. (Possibly Don Brautigam, who would go on to design dozens of famous covers for albums and books).

Published by Leader Printing of Coeur D’Alene and sponsored by the Pepsi-Cola Company.
