Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which all began in Mayo, MD. There is a lot of good information and there are lot of pictures throughout the website that you will probably find useful, and might even bring back some old memories from your own days of yore. The website began life around 1996 as an EarthLink screen name of ModelAirplanes, and quickly grew to where more server space ...

March 1940 Boys' Life

Table of Contents

The Boy Scouts of America has published Boys' Life since January 1, 1911. I received it for a couple years in the late 1960s while in the Scouts. I have begun buying copies on eBay to look for useful articles. As time permits, I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged. Here are the Boys' Life issues I have so far.

Prolific crossword puzzle creator Eugene Sheffer is somewhat of a mystery on the Internet. His name appears in the by-line of crosswords dating back at least into the 1930s, while also appearing in contemporary crosswords. A little investigation suggests that Mr. Sheffer died in 1981, but that King Syndicate owns the right to the 'By Eugene Sheffer' and still uses it today. I was not able to locate a biography of Eugene Sheffer, and he does not even have an entry in Wikipedia. Some forum posters question whether there ever was a 'real' Eugene Sheffer. Regardless, one place his (or its') crossword puzzles were printed was in Boys' Life magazine, published monthly by The Boy Scouts of America.

I created a few model aviation themed crossword puzzles that were published in the AMA's Model Aviation back around the year 2000.
