Video: Bill Gates as a Boy Scout, Seattle history

Here’s a tribute video prepared for the Boy Scouts of America, which presented Bill Gates with its Silver Buffalo award today during a luncheon at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle.

It’s a nice bit of Gates and Seattle history, with images of Gates during his time in Troop 186 in the Sand Point neighborhood.

Gates was accompanied to the event by his father — Bill Gates, an Eagle Scout — and stepmother, Mimi Gardner Gates.

Among the audience were former scoutmasters who led Bill back in the day, William Christoffersen and Don Van Wierengen.
