"A boy is like a tree. If his head is to reach the sky he must first plant his feet in the dirt."—Daniel Carter Beard

Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941), known to millions of Boy Scouts as "Uncle Dan," was a prominent Progressive-era reformer, outdoorsman, illustrator, and author. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio on June 21, 1850, Daniel was a gifted artist and a bookworm as a child. He loved the great outdoors and formed a club called the "Boone Scouts" with his friends. Beard graduated from Worrall’s Academy in Covington, Kentucky in 1869 with a degree in engineering and worked as a surveyor and engineer.
