Mrs. Dwight M. Wright, Organizing Secretary General NSDAR, notified Mrs. Harold E. Weaver of Edmondson
that the National Board of Management had confirmed her appointment as Organizing regent for a chapter
in West Memphis. The appointment was made at the request of Mrs. Louis N. Frazier, State Regent.
Mrs. Weaver at that time had been a member for eighteen years of the William Strong Chapter. She had
served as Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer, and as Historian. At the state level she had held the
offices of State Historian, State Chaplain, the chairmanship of Junior American Citizens, and also
served as State President of Children of the American Revolution. The organizational meeting was
held on January 15, 1951, at West Memphis Country Club with 15 Charter Members.
The Chapter chose the name of Robert Crittenden honoring an early politician who came from Kentucky
to Arkansas Post in 1819. He was appointed as the first Secretary of the newly
formed Arkansas Territory on March 3, 1819. He served in that office for ten years.
