Anna Jarvis, who conceived the idea of a special tribute to mothers, is shown in this 1928 file photo. Jarvis began a crusade for a national holiday to honor mothers in 1907 after the second anniversary of her mother’s death. Her campaign resulted in a Congressional resolution in 1914, signed by President Woodrow Wilson, proclaiming Mother’s Day as a national holiday to be celebrated on the second Sunday in May.
