Welcome to the Illinois State Organization web page. In the National Society Daughters of American Revolution, Illinois is “First in the Nation.” The NSDAR buildings, covering a city block, are on the National Register of Historical Sites.
We descendants of Revolutionary War patriots have continued to serve this country and society in various ways. During the Spanish American War through the efforts of NSDAR trained women nurses served in the Army and Navy. In World War I, daughters contributed over 94 million dollars. During World War II, the Red Cross utilized our buildings. The many and varied phases of volunteerism are through our national committees. Even in today’s fast world we continue to serve.
I have chosen the monarch butterfly as the symbol of my two-year administration. The monarch butterfly is little known as a pollinator, but it does contribute to the pollination of our nation’s food supply.
The State Regent’s projects will furnish badly needed commercial kitchen equipment for the cafeteria/student union at Bacone College.
During 2017-2019, members are encouraged to “spread their wings, as they have no idea how far they can fly.”
