A Little History, Celebrating Fathers

 

On July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” ¬†However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States.

There are more than 70 million fathers in the United States.
