DeVries BPW was chartered jointly with Rehoboth Club on Jan. 24, 1949 at the Angler's Restaurant, as a part of the Delaware Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs. The charter president was Hazel Brittingham, and the name "De- Vries" was suggested by Gladys R. Toms of Lewes, who was the state president at the time. Brit- tingham, an outstanding historian, skilled navigator, DeVries was given command of the expedition that set sail in December; 1630. The ship "Walvis" (Whale) was captained by Peter Heyes, and landed in the spring of 1631. As a tribute to the lovely swans in the region, the name of Zwaanendael (Valley of the Swans) was chosen for the site on a stream (now the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal), named Hoornkill, after DeVries' home in Hoorn, Holland. Past club presidents recognized Gibbs, Annetta H. Wright, Betty Chappell, June Sennebaum, Patri- cia Pope, M.
