Father's Day History
According to history.com, in December 1907, 362 men died because of the explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah.
In the memory of the men who died in that explosion, a church in West Virginia, sponsored nation first father's day on 5 July 1908. But it was just a one time thing and was not an annual holiday.
The website further states that in the year 1909, a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, tried to propose a day similar to Mother's Day for male parents. She wanted to observe Father's Day to honour her father, who raised his six children alone.
She was successful with her proposal and Father's Day was celebrated on 19 June 1910 in Washington.
