Sunday Marks 100th Anniversary Of First Official Mother’s Day

May 9, 2014

The Fraternal Order of Eagles points out that this Sunday (May 11) marks the 100th anniversary of the nation’s first official Mother’s Day.

In the most-recent Eagles publication “Soar,” organization officials point back to a memorial service in 1904 during which a former Notre Dame University professor, Frank Hering, reflected back to a date in which he walked into a fellow faculty member’s classroom and observed students involved in an assignment in which they were busy filling out postcards.  When he asked the other professor what the students were writing, he was told, “Anything at all, as long as it’s to their mothers.”  Hering was also informed the project was done once a month, because “One day a month is Mother’s Day.”

For ten years, Professor Hering, who was a two-time national Eagles president, embarked on a mission to have a day formally declared Mother’s Day.  The Eagles organization designated their own date in 1912, and two years later, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, on the recommendation of a woman named Ann Jarvis that a national observance should be held on the second Sunday in May, declared May 10, 1914 the first official Mother’s Day.
