Ineligible Volunteer File on Daniel J. Moore

Added July 5, 1988

In around 1920, soon after the Boy Scouts of America (“BSA”) was formed, the organization began keeping files on adult leaders and volunteers who were alleged to have committed various crimes and offenses. The files are known today as the “Ineligible Volunteer” or the “I.V. Files.”

The I.V. Files are made up of six categories of offenses including Perversion, Morals, Financial, Leadership, Theft and Criminal. By far the largest category is the Perversion Files, or “P Files” as the BSA internally refers to them. The Perversion Files contain the names of adult leaders who have been accused of, or convicted in a criminal court of, molesting or otherwise sexually abusing Boy Scouts.

Disclaimer: The information contained in each of the I.V. files was created solely by the Boy Scouts of America. The I.V. files for the period 1965 through 1985 were made public pursuant to a court order. By the terms of the court’s order, the names and contact information of persons identified as victims of sexual abuse and those that reported the abuse were redacted. If the person identified as the reporter of alleged abuse was a professional Scouter, i.e., an individual employed by the Boy Scouts of America or an affiliate, then the person’s name was not redacted. In 2012, the I.V. Files for the period 1986 through 1991 were made available to the public through the Los Angeles Times.

The information in the Perversion Files concerns allegations of child sexual abuse. In a number of the cases, the allegations were later substantiated by court proceedings. However, in a great many cases no such substantiation ever occurred.

The first page of each I.V. File is a “Confidential Record Sheet,” which provides basic background information on each individual. The information includes the individual’s date of birth, daytime job, and most importantly, his troop number and the basics of the allegations of abuse.

Summary: In June 1973, Mohegan Council of Massachusetts was notified that Scoutmaster Daniel J. Moore had been accused of molesting scouts. Mohegan Council confronted Moore and he did not deny the abuse had occurred. Moore was forced to resign by the Mohegan Council that same month. Yet in September 1987 it was discovered that Moore was again participating in scouting in the Mohegan Council. Apparently, the Mohegan Council had failed to notify BSA and as a result no one had noticed his involvement until some volunteers reported he had been forced to resign in the past. Moore was finally added to the IV file in June 1988, nine months after this issue was first reported to BSA.
