The Girl Scout Scarf
A BRIEF REVIEW OF NON-UNIFORMED GIRL SCOUT SCARVES
FROM 1937 THROUGH 1979 - AND INCLUDES ONE SCARF THAT STARTED OFF AS NON-OFFICIAL, THEN BECAME OFFICIAL 2 YEARS LATER.
1937 - 19" x 19"
First called a "Sports Scarf" and the catalog listed 4 colors; red, blue, green and yellow. In 1939 the green color was dropped from the listing. The last year this design was listed is 1940, when it was renamed the "Peasant Kerchief." That same year the name Sports Scarf was applied to another design (11-678).
Although the catalog listed a red color, I've never seen one. I have seen a white version.

1944 - dropped from the GS catalog in 1947...
...only to reappear in 1950. The caramel color had been dropped in favor of green, the size of the scarf increased to 30" square and the price dropped to 95 cents.
This rarely seen Girl Scout scarf was new in 1964, promoting the new age-levels of Junior and Cadettes, displaying some of the badges from those programs.
Shown above is the catalog image, that gives a better look at the scarf.
