Jones who became its Eminent Supreme Grand Patron. The present name is, Supreme Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star of the United States of America and Canada. "On July 18, 1929, in Washington,D.C.,the Supreme Grand Chapter was incorporated in perpetuity" The Supreme Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is composed of Grand Chapters and local chapters in states and territories where no Grand Chapter has been organized or in places where the Grand Chapter ceases its affiliation. In 1946, amendments were made to the constitution with the signatures of the authorized acting members of the Board of Directors, James Alja McDonald, Chairman, Timothy Butler, Odesia Williams, Mason Collins and Sallie Mae Dickey. The amended constitution was notarized on March 30, 1946 in Harris County Texas.
