    HISTORICAL NOTE

    In 1928, Mrs. Helen Tufts Bailie wrote an article accusing the Daughters of the American Revolution of circulating a "blacklist" of men and women who would not be welcome as speakers before D.A.R. members. The "blacklisted" people were accused of being Communists, Socialists, liberals, pacifists. Among those blacklisted by the D.A.R. was David Starr Jordan, former president of Stanford University. Many D.A.R. members and others protested the blacklist. Finally the Palo Alto chapter of the D.A.R. resigned their membership in the national organization.
