The History of the Connecticut Chapter
Our Work In Progress

We are currently gathering information to start a written history of,  The Connecticut Chapter of NSDFPA, the First 100 Years, 1901-2001. 

We hope to look back over the past 100 years of the Connecticut Chapter, to learn about those who were instrumental in helping to form our chapter in 1901 and how the chapter has progressed. 

This will be an on-going project of the current chapter historian and future historians(s) as they gather interesting and historical information about our chapter. 

Some areas of research will be: the first Connecticut Chapter President, notable chapter members or visitors to the chapter, DFPA Founder's or Patriot's who's service was indispensable to the founding of the State of Connecticut, and past service projects.  

Previous ledgers, forms and chapter protocol will be researched and we hope to also discover publications such as books, magazines and newspaper articles that will help us to learn more about the Connecticut chapter.  

The index, shown to the right is the Connecticut Chapter's First Member Index, Volume I, used by the Chapter Registrar until 1923,and is just one example of reference material that will be examined.  


Once we are able to compile enough information to start, we will determine how to best publish our information.  Ideas such as a series of small articles for the DFPA Gazette Magazine, short stories shared with members on this website or through email, or self-publish into a booklet. 

If you think you might have interesting historical information  about the Connecticut Chapter, pictures of past events or activities that you would like to share, or would be interested in helping with research and writing, please contact our historian.

News from National...

Ms. Kim Nagy
NSDFPA National President
Term 2018 - 2021

The Connecticut Chapter welcomes the new National President, Ms. Kim Nagy. She and her newly elected team will serve their three year term as National Officers from 2018 - 2021.

Ms. Nagy has announced that the National Project for 2018 - 2021 will be:

The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial in Fairfax County Virginia

The memorial will commemorate the five million women from every state, creed, race and nationality who fought for seventy-two years to win ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution.

The memorial will be built in Occoquan Regional Park, Fairfax County, Virginia on the site of the historic prison grounds where scores of suffragists, aged 19-73, were imprisoned for picketing the White House in 1917. There will be 19 education stations where visitors can learn about the history of the suffrage movement, as well as a meditation area to reflect upon the memorial's message of empowerment.
