Biographical/Historical Note

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is a lineage-based membership organization of women. It was founded on October 11, 1890, in Washington D.C. and was incorporated by a Congressional charter in 1896. Their objectives are historic preservation, education, and patriotism. In December of 1893, the first Arkansas chapter was founded in Little Rock. The organization has expanded to about 47 chapters today. The first state conference was held in 1909 and is still being held yearly. The Little Rock Centennial Chapter was officially approved at the National Board of Management meeting on February 5, 2000, as a result of a merger between two local chapters: the Little Rock Chapter (chartered March 1894) and the Centennial Chapter (chartered April 16, 1919).
