Learn About Our Founder
AARP Founder Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus once said, “old age is not a defeat, but a victory, not a punishment, but a privilege.” Born in 1884, the activist founded in 1958 what was then known as the American Association of Retired Persons, which became AARP, the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering older people to choose how they live as they age.
