First Official Mother's Day...

Item # 695672

April 15, 1914

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 15, 1914  This issue contains an article from the month before Mother's Day was made an official holiday. The article includes: "The Federal Government is lending its assistance to the movement, and on that day the clergy of the whole country will be asked to preach sermons regarding the general welfare of the home and so help to make Mother's Day of practical value. The celebration of this day is in no way connected with woman suffrage, although the association is friendly to the suffrage movement wherever it may benefit the home."
Complete in 22 pages with a rough and lose left spine.  While fragile, this issue is in overall good condition for the era.
