A History of Mother's Day
In 1858, Anna Jarvis, a young Appalachian homemaker, organized "Mother's
Work Days" to improve the sanitation and avert deaths from disease-bearing
insects and seepage of polluted water. In 1905, when she died , her daughter, also
named Anna, embarked on a remarkable campaign to create a day to honor her
mother and mothers everywhere.
Anna poured out a constant stream of letters to men of prominence -- President
William Taft and former President Theodore Roosevelt among them -- and enlisted
considerable help from Philadelphia merchant John Wannamaker.
By May of 1907, a Mother's Day service had been arranged on the second Sunday
in May at the Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia, where Mother Jarvis
had taught. That same day a special service was held at the Wannamaker
Auditorium in Philadelphia, which could seat no more than a third
of the 15,000 people who showed up.
The custom quickly spread to churches in 45 states and in Puerto Rico, Hawaii,
Mexico and Canada. The Governor of West Virginia proclaimed Mother's Day in
1912; Pennsylvania's governor in 1913 did the same. The following year saw a
Congressional Resolution recognizing Mother's Day, which was promptly signed
by President Woodrow Wilson.
