In 1905, with twelve charter members, the
Chief Justice Cushing Chapter was founded and accepted by the National
Society. The name was chosen because of William Cushing's prominence in the
legal affairs in Colonial Massachusetts and as an Associate Justice of the
Supreme Court of the United States.
In 1796, after Chief Justice Rutledge
resigned, President Washington nominated William Cushing to become the Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court. However, because of poor health, he declined. He died on
September 13, 1810, and is buried in Scituate.
The Chief Justice Cushing Chapter has
always responded and been active in local affairs throughout the years.
Ella Turner Bates was the founder and first regent, 1905-1910
