History: Chapter Presidents

Individual Honors

Since the Washington, DC – Baltimore (WDCB) Chapter's charter was presented in December 1955, the chapter has had many distinguished members serve as the chapter president. The following table lists the names we can find in our records. Unfortunately, not all records of chapter officers were sent to the Society office in the past. The Chapter History Committee is collecting information to include on this page. If you have photos for the archives or information that will fill in the blanks, please send an e-mail message to:
