Ernest Thompson Seton: an unforgettable personality, by Edgar M. Robinson
This piece, titled “Ernest Thomas Seton: an unforgettable personality”, gives a first hand interpretation of who Ernest Thompson Seton (it is believed that whoever put the cover on this document spelled his name wrong) was through the eyes of Edgar Robinson. Robinson explains what a strong relationship the two of them had and what a strong mentor Seton was to Robinson. Ernest Thompson Seton was an author and illustrator of more than 50 works, and was largely responsible for the American Indian influence in the Boy Scouts of America that offered young people knowledge of an outdoor life based on Native American Indian customs, legends and beliefs. Seton was Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts of America from 1910 to 1915. Edgar M. Robinson was a 1901 graduate from the YMCA Training School, now Springfield college, where he later returned to serve on the faculty as the Honorary Director of Boys Work Courses and the Adviser in Methods and Principles in Work with Boys from 1927-1937.
