History of Chancellor Wythe Chapter, NSDAR
Chancellor Wythe Chapter, NSDAR was organized on November 30, 1921, by Alice Burgess Ramos in Ashland, Virginia. Our colors are blue and white and our flower is the white rose. Our motto, attributed to Edmund Burke, is “Those who do not look backward to their ancestors, will not look forward to their posterity”. Our chapter is named after Chancellor George Wythe.
We meet on the second Saturday morning of each month from September through May. The meeting locations vary and are found throughout the Richmond, Virginia, area. In addition to regular meetings, there are opportunities throughout the year for members to attend special events like chapter, district, and state conferences as well as field trips and naturalization ceremonies.
Chancellor Wythe Chapter, NSDAR is a large chapter in the Richmond area with over 100 members and one of the oldest! Our members range from those who have joined in the last year to others who have been in NSDAR for nearly 60 years. Our membership includes women who are retirees, working moms, and college students. Some women work in the home, while others are accountants, teachers, health care professionals, IT professionals, and many others.
