EDITOR: Dick Dudley was a Boy Scout. He was ranked a Star Scout.

In 1967, when the Wausau entrepreneur who died last month at 89 was an adult Scouter, he was appointed as finance chairman for the Samoset Council. In this capacity, Dudley developed and sold the sustaining membership enrollment finance program to aid in council financing. These are annual gifts. In 1969, the council budget had been balanced for three straight years with him as chairman.

In 1973, Dudley secured the visit of Miss America to the council's annual meeting, which was held at Wausu Insurance Company. There were 540 in attendance.

In 1977, Dudley was awarded the Scouting Silver Beaver award for exceptional service by a registered Scouter,of exceptional character in Samoset Council.

Dudley was a pleasure to work with in serving the 14-county Council in north central Wisconsin for Scouting and the 6,000 registered youth members.
