Sons and Daughters

New York-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health "Plates for Pediatrics" Benefit Dinner.
Delia von Neuschatz reports for NYSD: This past Satuirday night (January 28) at the Yale Club at 50 Vanderbilt Avenue on the corner of 44th Street, the first New York Continental Chapter, National Society, Sons of the American Revolution hosted a gala ball with the Daughters of the American Revolution. The Sons and Daughters Gala Ball was held in honor of their respective Presidents General, Mr. Larry J. Magerkurth and Mrs. Merry Ann T. Wright.

The Louisville, Kentucky-based Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) seeks to “maintain and expand the meaning of patriotism, respect for our national symbols, the value of American citizenship, and the unifying force of "e pluribus unum" that was created from the people of many nations -- one nation and one people.”

The SAR (not to be confused with the Sons of the Revolution - SR), and the Washington, DC-based DAR are non-profit organizations which place special emphasis on education. They conduct historical research and raise funds for local scholarships and educational awards. They are also active in the preservation of sites and documents related to the American Revolution. 

The SAR’s petition to Congress to make Revolutionary-era documents available to the public and to store them in a fire-proof building led to the creation of the National Archives in 1913.  Today, the SAR and DAR’s comprehensive Genealogical Research Libraries in Louisville, Kentucky and Washington, DC are open to the general public.

Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter, Calvin Coolidge, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Franklin D. and Theodore Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Harry S. Truman, Douglas macArthur, George S.
