Daughters of the American Colonists

California State Society


Thank you for your interest in the Daughters of American Colonists.

Please refer to About Us on the top menu to get a brief outlook on the purpose and goals of the Society. For an even more in-depth view, go to the National web site.

The California State Society was organized April 3, 1925 by Mrs. Earl J. Fellows at Los Angeles, CA. It was shortly followed by chapters in Santa Barbara and San Francisco. Today, there are ten chapters located though out the state. Click on Chapters to locate the chapter closest to you. You will find a map and chapter locations.

To enable our members to be active in an area of their interest, we are actively involved in several committees devoted to patriotism, history, and education. We support students in local high schools and colleges by presenting JROTC and ROTC awards. We support history by placing markers at historical sites in California. A listing of those already marked can be found under Chapters. We support education through scholarships.

The California Society continues to support the National projects designated by the current National President. In addition, the state has a theme and projects to support the state theme. During the 2021-2023 state administration, the theme “New Beginnings” was chosen as a reflection on the COVID-19 pandemic and the excessive amount of forest fires in the State of California during the past two years. We are hopefully starting to come out of that era and will be beginning anew in many areas.

Two state projects have been chosen: reforestation and literacy promotion. Donations will be collected for the Penny 4 Pines programs specifically for forests with loss of Oak trees. Chapters and their members have been encouraged to seek out the literacy programs in their community concentrating on adults to discover how they can help through donations or volunteering.

You can pursue your membership by contacting the chapter directly or the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Kathy Watson. To contact the chapter directly, click on the acorn on the Chapter link of your choosing.

Warmest regards,
