Founders Day preceded the current celebration of Charter Day at the College of William and Mary. The annual celebration of Charter Day at the College of William and Mary was primarily a twentieth century development that was initiated by President John Stewart Bryan in 1937. Previously, Founders Day was celebrated on August 15th. It commemorated the official transfer of the Charter to the College of William and Mary and its presentation to President James Blair and the faculty on August 15, 1729.
