Mystery History Contest

THIS WEEK'S MYSTERY HISTORY GUEST 

This week’s Mystery History guest was born in Savannah, GA in 1860 and lived until 1927. When she was little, her uncle nicknamed her “Daisy.” As she got older her family called her “Crazy Daisy” because they thought her independent behavior was strange. As a child, she formed the Helping Hands Club, where she and her cousins sewed clothes for Italian immigrant children. As a young adult she traveled a great deal, always learning new skills like woodworking and metalworking, which she used to create an iron gate for their Savannah home. During a trip to England in 1911, she met Lord Baden-Powell and his wife. The couple had created clubs for English children dedicated to encouraging citizenship and skills. When our Mystery History Guest returned to her Savannah home, she organized a meeting of young girls dedicated to the principles she observed in the Baden-Powell clubs. These first club meetings grew into an international organization that still exists today.
