In this June 12, 2017, photo, Betsy Roddy of Los Angeles looks at a story in the Aug. 17, 1910, edition of The River Press of Fort Benton, Mont., describing how her great-grandmother, Sonora Smart Dodd, organized the first Father's Day earlier that year in Spokane, Wash. Father's Day, which has since become an international celebration, was created by Dodd to honor, among others, her own father, William Jackson Smart, who raised her and her five siblings after their mother died. Roddy is the last living descendant of Dodd, known as the Mother of Father's Day. (AP Photo/John Rogers)
