American Girl Scouts have worn specialized uniforms since their organization was founded in 1912. From 1948 until 1959, Intermediate scouts (ages 10 to 13) could make or purchase practical green dresses with pockets, buttoned collars--to secure the signature Girl Scout neckerchief--and pleated backs for greater mobility. This uniform was worn by a Chicago Girl Scout in the mid-1950s.
