Juliette Gordon Low (October 31, 1860 – January 17, 1927) was the founder of Girl Scouts of the USA.
Inspired by the work of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of Boy Scouts, Juliette Low joined the Girl Guide movement in England, forming a group of Girl Guides in Great Britain in 1911.
In 1912 she returned to the United States, and established the first U.S.
Girl Guide troop in Savannah, Georgia, that year.
In 1915, the United States' Girl Guides became known as the Girl Scouts, and Juliette Gordon Low was the first ever leader.
She stayed active until the time of her death.
Her birthday, October 31, is commemorated by the Girl Scouts as "Founder's Day".
