The Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter, NSDAR, was organized in Arvada, Colorado, on 12 January 2008.
Our chapter is named in honor of Doctor Susan Anderson (1870-1960). She graduated with a medical degree from the medical school in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1907 she moved to Fraser, where she thought the high mountain air could improve her health. Doc Susie, as the local folks called her, treated people in several towns along the railway. She delivered babies, cared for the sick, treated injuries of the ranchers, farmers, railway and tunnel workers, logging men, and sometimes even animals! She cared for people during the major influenza epidemic of 1918. In 1926 she became the Coroner of Grand County.
As a professional, she inspired young girls to pursue lives beyond the drudgery of most women of that era. The Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter is an active group of women of all ages – from college students, to career women, to homemakers and retirees. For those who have various commitments during the day, consider joining us for an evening dinner meeting full of sharing and various DAR activities. The Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter, NSDAR, meets September through May on the second Tuesday of the month, with the meeting beginning at 6:00 pm, except for two Saturday day meetings in January and May. If you would like to join us as a guest at our next meeting, contact Membership Chairmen at Membership@DoctorSusanAnderson.org for more information.
