A similar image was used on the 1919 cover of Boy’s Life, the Boy Scouts’ magazine. Rockwell paintings adorned the cover of over 50 of the magazine’s covers. Rockwell had a 64 year relationship with the Boy Scouts. He was an illustrator for the Hike Book, the art editor of Boy’s Life Magazine, and produced images for the Boy Scout Calendar.
