The Mary Tyler Chapter was founded February 28, 1907, by Miss Jennie Mae Perry, and is located in Tyler, Smith County, Texas. It was named for Mary Marot Armistead Tyler, the mother of John Tyler, tenth President of the United States of America.

Our Mission

For more than a century, the members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution have dedicated themselves to historical preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriotic endeavor. These goals are as relevant in today's society as they were when the organization was founded in 1890.

Most of DAR's volunteer work is accomplished under a committee system comprised of a national chairman appointed by the President General and locally appointed state and chapter chairmen. The national chairmen direct and supervise the activities of their committees with the assistance of the national vice chairmen. The committees are grouped based on the above-mentioned goals and objectives.

About Us

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.

The Mary Tyler Chapter NSDAR enthusiastically promotes the DAR mission. The chapter meets on the second Tuesday of the month, August through May, unless otherwise determined. Visitors and prospective members are welcome at all meetings, except for one annual business meeting in January.
