Abstract

The Daughters of the American Revolution Fernanda Maria Chapter Collection documents the administration and activities of the Northridge based local chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and reflects a segment of San Fernando Valley social life in the 20th and early 21st centuries. The hereditary based organization's educational, patriotic, historic preservation, and genealogy activities are reflected primarily through scrapbooks, meeting minutes, photographs, and awards.

Biographical Note

The Daughters of the American Revolution Fernanda Maria Chapter was founded in 1952 in Van Nuys, but later relocated to Northridge. It is a local chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which is a membership organization that admits descendants of those that aided the American Revolution in some form. The Fernanda Maria Chapter was named after the first girl child baptized at Mission San Fernando. The Chapter's installation ceremony was held at Campo de Cahuenga on October 20, 1952. In 1953 the chapter organized the San Fernando Valley’s first Children of the American Revolution Chapter, and in January 2001 the chapter merged with the Juan Crespi Chapter.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Daughters of the American Revolution Fernanda Maria Chapter Collection documents the Chapter's founding, administration, committee work, and philanthropic activities. The Chapter is particularly active in programs that support U.S. military veterans and educational activities and outreach related to the U.S. Constitution.

Materials also reflect activities at the state and national level, with Daughters of the American Revolution California State Society conference programs and photographs, and records of Chapter members’ attendance at national Continental Congresses. The collection is divided into two major series: Administrative Records (1952-2015) and Club History Records (1952-2015).

Series I, Administrative Records, contains meeting minutes, correspondence, awards received by the organization, DAR manuals, member directories, and two treasurers’ books that document how members ran the club. This series also includes records of the Juan Crespi Chapter, which merged with Fernanda Maria in 2001, and California Region VIII meeting minutes, attendance records, and awards. These are arranged alphabetically by type, and then chronologically.

Series II, Club History Records, contains historian files, photographs, event ephemera, and scrapbooks created by the club historian to document club activities. Several scrapbooks contain materials related to the local Children of the American Revolution chapter. These are arranged chronologically.
