In 1951 a committee was established to start coordinating the activity of the so called old Estonians in the United States. The outcome of was the foundation of the Estonian American Citizen Association in New York in 1952. The Association (originally named also Estonian American Citizen League) united US citizens with Estonian provenance to centralize their activity. The objective of the organization was to represent and protect the members of the organization and to support the principles to ensure freedom and independence to small nations, especially Estonia.
