History of Firecrafter Advisors

From 1920-1953, Firecrafter did not have an Advisor.  The program was directly advised by the Council Scout Executive. Francis O. Belzer served in the position until 1939.  He was followed by Homer T. Gratz, Delmar H. Wilson, and Frank Chase.  Under the leadership of Frank Chase, the first Firecrafter Advisor was appointed in 1953. The Firecrafter Advisor position oversees the operations of the Firecrafter Organization. The Advisor is appointed annually by the Council's Scout Executive.
