Father's Day is the celebration of
fathers. It goes back to the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day. The first observance
of Father's Day actually took place in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 5, 1908. It was organized by
Mrs. Grace Golden Clayton, who wanted to celebrate the lives of the 210 fathers who had been lost in the
Monongah Mining disaster several months earlier in Monongah, West Virginia, on December 6,
1907. Clayton chose the Sunday nearest to the birthday of her recently deceased father.
Unfortunately, the day was overshadowed by other events in the city, West Virginia did not officially
register the holiday, and it was not celebrated again. Instead, credit for Father's Day went to Sonora Dodd
from Spokane, who invented independently her own celebration of Father's Day just two years later, also
influenced by Jarvis' Mother's Day. Clayton's celebration was forgotten until 1972, when one of the
attendants to the celebration saw Nixon's proclamation of Father's Day, and worked to recover its
legacy. Fairmont is now promoted as the "Home of the First Father's Day
A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was
introduced in Congress in 1913. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father's Day
celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, fearing that it would become
commercialized. US President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be observed by the nation, but
stopped short of issuing a national proclamation. Two earlier attempts to formally recognize the holiday had
been defeated by Congress. In 1957, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith wrote a proposal accusing Congress of
ignoring fathers for 40 years while honoring mothers, thus "singling out just one of our two parents." In
1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating
the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when
President Richard Nixon signed it into law in
