About Dr. Terry Grove
In 1951 Terry Grove, at the age of nine, joined Cub Scouting and earned the Arrow of Light. During his years in Boy Scouting he travelled to Philmont, served on the Order of the Arrow Service Corps at the 1960 National Jamboree and earned the God and Country Award. Terry earned the Eagle Scout Award in 1956.
As an adult he has been accorded the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. God and Service Award, District Award of Merit, and the Silver Beaver. He is a Vigil Honor member in the Order of the Arrow and a recipient of the Order’s Founders Award.
His interest in the collection and displaying of Boy Scout memorabilia began in 1981 while serving as an Assistant Scoutmaster for the Thomas A. Edison Council’s National Jamboree contingent. This initial interest was transformed into a love for the research of Eagle Scout materials from which he has written his book on the Eagle Scout Award – now in its fifth edition. Later his research resulted in his book, “The Kekeenowin of the Wimachtendienk.” It is the definitive history of the beginnings of the Order of the Arrow from 1915 through 1948.
He has had several articles published in collector magazines. His complete Eagle Scout Award display was on view at the Boy Scout National Museum in Irving, Texas from January to May 2003 and again in celebration of the 100 years of the Eagle Scout Award from July 2012 through January 2013. The Eagle display has also been featured prominently at the 2005 National Jamboree and the 2010 National Jamboree.
In 2001 he received the first Scouting Memorabilia Distinguished Service Award from the International Scout Collectors Association (ISCA) for his work.
Terry is a graduate of Juniata College, Huntingdon, Pa. and Bethany Theological Seminary, Oakbrook, IL, where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity degree and later a Doctor of Ministry degree. He is married and has two children. His son Scott is an Eagle Scout. Terry is a retired minister having served Church World Service as a Regional Director in New Jersey and Florida and having served churches in Washington State, Indiana, and Florida.
