Welcome to the OA History Timeline. It is our focus and obligation to always "observe and preserve the traditions of the Order of the Arrow." This resource and database does just that. It gives everyone a chance to take a look, back into the past, and learn about the rich history that our Order holds.
Understanding our past is crucial, especially as we look to the future. Our founder, Dr. E. Urner Goodman, and co-founder, Carroll A. Edson, started an organization that has made an impact for almost a century. Here In our 98th year, we have already begun to look onward to the future, but we will always look back and cherish the rich history that has brought us here today.
