Daughter of James Hart and Frances Porter Allen, wife of William Cumming Story.

Daisy Allen Story, 1913–1917, New York
Ninth President General

"Daisy Allen Story joined New York City Chapter in 1891. Before being elected President General, she served as State Regent of New York.

Mrs. Story has the distinction of being the last President General to serve four consecutive years. She was elected President General in 1913 and re-elected in 1915. During her administration, the DAR Constitution was amended to extend the term of office to three years and that no member would be eligible for the same national office for two consecutive terms.

A native of New York, her home was at the historic village of Pelham Manor located near New Rochelle, in southern Westchester County. She was a prominent socialite and the granddaughter of Stephen Allen, a former mayor of New York City. She became a member of New York City Chapter early in the second year of the Society’s existence. Her national number being 826, she barely missed being a charter member; that is, one of the 818 women who joined the organization prior to October 11, 1891. In 1892, she organized Manhattan Chapter, New York, N.Y., and was elected State Regent in 1909." - dar.org

Note: Daisy's full name was Fannie Ella Daisy Allen Story.
