In September of 1948, Area E, which covered eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia was renamed Area 3-A; and Area F, which covered western Pennsylvania, was renamed Area 3-B as part of the 1948 integration into the twelve scouting regions

I need to show councils with disbanded lodges that either rechartered with a new name OR merged into a council with existing lodge. I also need to correct boundary for SW Warren Co. when re-drawing maps for Region 3.

Reference: lists published by National, "Area, Area Leaders, and Lodges" (5/13/1949) and "Organizational Pattern and Local Lodge Listing, 1952"

Mercer County Council, located in northwestern Pennsylvania, also included the small community of Brookfield Township right across the border in Ohio. All region and council maps that I have seen prior to the 1973 Six Regions depict the Ohio-Penna. border as a region boundary. The most significant map of this era was in 1965, and did not include Ohio. However, research and maps of Region 3 published by Neal Bronder include that small part of Ohio.

Dave Scocca has created a very slick animated map from Youtube that shows the boundary changes for Region III.
