Chapter History

On January 21, 2016, the Hollywood Chapter NSDAR celebrated its 105th birthday! What began as a dream in 1909, by a few women, materialized in January 1911. From this young chapter, with only 29 charter members, a vibrant and thriving chapter full of incredible women has developed.

There have been 45 regents of the chapter, starting with Mrs. Mary Isabella Barnes. We have eight past regents currently living. Three past California State Regents are members of our chapter. 

The Hollywood Chapter also incorporated three chapters in previous years: Cabrillo Chapter in 1987; Milly Barrett Chapter in 1988; and the Hannah Bushrod Chapter in 1998.
