M89-25 - ARKANSAS DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION COLLECTION

This collection consists of materials relating to the history of the Arkansas Daughters of the American Revolution, a chapter of one of the oldest patriotic societies in the country.  The materials are mainly programs and proceedings from their annual conferences which were held through out Arkansas.

The DAR was founded in 1890 as a society for women, who were interested in gathering historical materials.  This includes both the Revolutionary War period and their ancestral records.  The Arkansas chapter held its first annual conference in 1908, and is still a strong organization today.  The group's main goals are not only in preserving national history, but state history as well.
