Promoting patriotism, education, and historic preservation since 1923


 
 

The Alexander Love Chapter in Houston Texas was organized in 1923 by a group of ladies who felt the need to pursue an active participation in patriotic work. A hospital for disabled World War I veterans located at Camp Logan (now Memorial Park) offered the ladies the volunteer service they were seeking.

Several meetings were held before the October 19,1923, meeting at the First Christian Church in Houston, Texas, when the Alexander Love Chapter NSDAR was formally chartered. Mrs. Rowan and Mrs. McFarland were recognized as the co-founders.

A motion was made and carried that the chapter be named after Alexander Love  who was the Revolutionary South Carolina ancestor of 10 chapter members of the Sterling Family .

Seventy two ladies were charter members of the chapter including a past State Regent, Mrs. I. B. McFarland ;  a past State Chaplain, Mrs. H. S. Renick; and past State Historian, Mrs. W. A. Rowan.

The Chapter Colors are Blue and White.

The Chapter Motto is “Add Honor to Ancestral Honor.”


The Chapter Flower is the Cherokee Rose.

The Alexander Love Chapter has continued a strong tradition of Member service to NSDAR and TXDAR since our organization in 1923.

Our membership surpassed 200 in 2006. We have an Evening Committee that meets seven times a year. Our day chapter meetings are held the second Thursday of the month at noon, September through May. 

We invite ladies interested in supporting an organization steeped in patriotism, service to education and dedicated to the preservation of our American heritage especially in our Houston area. This is the tradition of Alexander Love Chapter NSDAR.
