to Historical Porcelain
The Larz and Isabel Anderson Home
These beautiful porcelain items, and many historical pieces of art work,
are on display at The Anderson Home in Washington D.C. Mrs. Isabel
Anderson, a poet and writer of plays, travelogues and books for
children, left her home to The Society of Cincinnati in honor of her husband.
husband, Larz Anderson, was a member of The Society of Cincinnati, a
male only institution that was started in the 1790's by officers of the
Revolutionary War. The officers wanted a place to meet, remember and
support each other as the war was coming to an end.
Unfortunately, the laws of the society
give the oldest son of each member automatic membership into the society
for all future generations with no exceptions for daughters or 2nd sons. This was seen as
hypocritical as we had just won a war from the very nation that inspired
such a one sided tradition and many of the members were not first sons.
The society has preserved many important , books, papers, personal artifacts, maps, military assignments, certificates and other important documents of the creation of the United States of America.
Ironically, the entire time I was at the museum and on tour, I only saw women. The women run the front desk, the tours and are the museums docent, archivist, librarians and housekeepers. For a complete list of their staff and
more information about the Society, here is a link:
