Dwight D. Eisenhower Elected 34th President

Brilliant military five-star General and 34th President of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower (“Ike”) is probably best known for his internationally focused politics in response to events involving the Soviet Union and China.

Eisenhower served on the Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America and was a very strong supporter of Scouting ever since his son participated in the program. 

President Eisenhower was made an "honorary member" of the Order of the Arrow on April 23, 1954 by the members of Zit-Kala-Sha Lodge, Louisville, Kentucky.  The only president to be "inducted" was Franklin D. Roosevelt.
