Daughters of the Republic of Texas: Sterling C. Robertson Chapter

The Sterling C. Robertson Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas was organized in Waco in April 1900, and was the ninth chapter to be chartered in Texas. Mrs. Richard Harrison, granddaughter of empresario Sterling C. Robertson, for whom the chapter is named, was the first president. The Sterling C. Robertson Chapter of the DRT still exists today and has continually supported the objectives of the association by "perpetuating the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved and maintained the independence of Texas; preserving documents and relics; celebrating Texas honors days; and securing and memorializing all historic spots."
