Father’s Day Short History

In 1915, a member of the Lions Club introduced the concept of Father’s Day. The preference was for the day to occur on the third Sunday in June. The Lions Club International elected to give him the official designation as the “Originator of Father’s Day” and he continued the quest to promote Father’s Day as an official holiday.

After receiving numerous requests for a special day to honor fathers, in 1916, President Wilson proclaimed a day should be recognized as a federal holiday. This was during a speech he gave in Spokane at a Father’s Day celebration. However, when the concept reached Congress, it was denied. The majority of the members in Congress were concerned that it would become too commercialized, and the true meaning would be all about companies profiting.

President Coolidge suggested a recognition for Father’s Day in 1924. Then in 1957, a female Senator spoke out that Congress had been ignoring fathers for over 40 years and had only been honoring mothers. Then in 1966 the first proclamation of Father’s Day was issued by President Lyndon B. Johnson. It was declared that the day to honor all fathers would be the third Sunday in June. This became a permanent holiday in 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed it into law.
