06:00 Father's Day History: History of Father's Day
Trace day through life of Rev. Fletcher Golden, the "father who inspired Father's Day." His daughter, Grace Golden Clayton of Fairmont is pictured as the one who suggested this day as a tribute to those killed in Monongah Mine Disaster on Dec. 7, 1907. Two reasons are given for Fairmont not receiving credit for having started Father's Day: events of July 4, 1908 and the late evening death of a young member of the church. The original service was held on July 5, the Sunday closest to Fletcher's birth of July 8th. However, all sites, books, and records list Fairmont as having the first father's day worship, 2 years before anyone else.
