Juliette Gordon Low began life as the child of a wealthy family in Savannah, Georgia. She went to private schools in America. Later she married a multimillionaire and lived in grand houses in England and Scotland. When her husband died, Daisy Low looked for something useful to do. One day she met Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts and its sister organization, the Girl Guides. In 1912, Daisy started the first American Girl Guides troops in Savannah, Georgia. The name later changed to Girl Scouts of America. Juliette Low was its first president. For the rest of her life, Juliette Low gave all her resources and her boundless energy to developing the Girl Scouts.
