Biography

Juliette Gordon Low (October 31, 1860 – January 17, 1927) was the founder of Girl Scouts of the USA.

Juliette Magill Kinzie Gordon was born on October 31, 1860, in Savannah, Georgia. She was named after her grandmother, Juliette Augusta Magill Kinzie, and nicknamed Daisy (a common nickname at the time) by her uncle. She was the second of six children born to William "Willie" Washington Gordon II, a cotton broker with the firm Tison & Gordon[3] (later renamed to W. W. Gordon & Company), and Eleanor "Nellie" Lytle Kinzie, a writer whose family played a role in the founding of Chicago. Six months after her birth, her father joined the Confederate States Army to fight in the American Civil War.

She married William Mackay Low in Savannah on her parents' wedding anniversary, December 21, 1886. William Low died from a seizure in June 1905, before the divorce was finalized.

Gordon Low developed breast cancer in 1923, but kept it a secret. Gordon Low died in Savannah on January 17, 1927. Gordon Low was buried in her Girl Scout uniform, at Laurel Grove Cemetery..
