Biographical/Historical note

The Department of Youth Leadership is a unique training center in the College of Physical Education. It is specifically designed to train LDS college men for a career of service to the Boy Scouts of America. The Youth Leadership Department also provides training for volunteer scouting service in the wards and branches of the Church. Royal Stone, deputy regional scout executive serving the four northwestern states and Alaska, resigned his position to organize the department. After four years of administering the department, Royal Stone resigned to accept a position with the head office of the National Council of Boy Scouts. Thane Packer was named his successor. The department has now been renamed as the Department of Recreation Management and Youth Leadership.
