The impetus for a National Grandparents
Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife
in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to
champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also
hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage
their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978,
proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated
every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.
