DISTINGUISHED DAUGHTERS OF PENNSYLVANIA AWARDS

9 - 4 THE PENNSYLVANIA MANUAL

In 1948 a group of influential women suggested to Governor James H. Duff that outstanding women of Pennsylvania be recognized for their leadership and contributions to the state. The plans to honor these women developed into the Distinguished Daughters of Pennsylvania Awards, and the first awards were given in 1949. Each year, state organizations nominate women in recognition of outstanding accomplishments of statewide or national importance. Quality of achievement of the individual comes first. The Daughters select the names to be given to the governor for approval.
