Fred Maytag II
Fred Maytag II was born the year after the Boy Scouts of America in 1911. He became a member of Newton’s Troop 1, chartered to St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. Young Fred became an Eagle Scout and after the untimely death of his father E. H. Maytag, assumed leadership of the Maytag Company at age 29.
During the eventful years as head of the company, Fred Maytag created the Maytag Family Foundation and Maytag Company Foundation, both of which have benefited Central Iowa far beyond the typical standards of community-spirited giving.
Mid-Iowa Council also benefited from his leadership and friendship. After his death, the Maytag Family Foundation continued support of the council by building, and rebuilding, the Maytag Pool at Camp Mitigwa. They have consistently been the leading sustaining member of the Council and are providing the lead funding for the new Scout Center, as well as a challenge endowment gift to maintain the facility in perpetuity.
SVPA Architects Inc.
Founded in 1953 by Robert E. Savage and Stanley C. Ver Ploeg, SVPA Architects Inc. is an Iowa staple. Perhaps you’ve seen their work: the Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Building, the Iowa Soybean Association Office Building and the new Aviva USA Headquarters. For the Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts, SVPA stressed beauty and vitality. Their attention to detail showed ultimate respect for both Boy Scout traditions and the environment. A testament to SVPA’s expertise—and why the Mid-Iowa Council Boy Scouts is proud to call SVPA partner.
