State Affiliation

History


Charter Members

The 11 statewide Federations that organized as charter members in 1938 were California, Colorado, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The 13 additional states, represented by 75 individual local clubs, were Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin. To be considered "statewide" at that time, a state Federation or local club had to have members in 60 percent of the counties of that state. (Later this rule was changed to cover either 50 percent of the counties or 75 percent of the state's congressional districts.)
