Page Contradictions: “Father’s Day (United States)” vs “Father’s Day”
The page “Father's Day (United States)” and the page "Father's Day" have conflicting statements regarding the history of “Father’s Day” in the United States.
The page “Father’s Day (United States)” says that it was "first proposed by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington in 1909”, and references USA.gov "https://www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/Fathers-Day.shtml”. The page points to a 404 Error Page Not Found”, but the archived page is available at http://www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/Fathers-Day.shtml
The page “Father’s Day” (sub-section 1.2: "In the United States > Beginnings”) claims that "the first observance of a "Father's Day" was held on July 5, 1908, in Fairmont, West Virginia, in the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South, now known as Central United Methodist Church.” and references "Myers, 1972, p. 185”.
This contradiction demands that 1 of these 2 pages be modified to reflect the most accurate information; does anyone have anything to add, and which source should be accepted?
