The San Francisco Tongmenghui was formed on lunar year 1/18 (Gregorian calendar 2/27). One must vow and pledge in order to become a member of a Tongmenghui.

In the same lunar year in February, Dr. Sun Yat Sen arrived in Los Angeles. At that time, there were already many overseas Chinese endorsing and supporting his viewpoint. A welcome banquet was held at the 2nd ﬂoor of the “Sun building” in Alhambra Street with over 600 attendees. Dr. Sun Yat Sen’s speech stressed the importance of the revolution and elaborated the Three Principles of the People. The message was very decisive with the audience emotionally moved. This rapidly furthers the momentum of the Los Angeles overseas Chinese revolution.

Lunar year 2/12 (Gregorian calendar 3/22), he left San Francisco and went to Honolulu to set up the Tongmenghui. California’s Tongmenghui had already extended to Winnemucca, Humphreys, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Glenn, Bakersfield, Fresno, Ellenton, Stockton, etc. All gradually formed its own subdivision. The Los Angeles branch was the earliest origin. The San Francisco Tongmenghui served as the headquarter, named as United States (US)/China Tongmenghui. The open ceremony was on Lunar year 10/10 (Gregorian calendar 11/11). It declared as the Revolutionary Committee of the Kuomintang, which was also the US-based Chinese revolution party.

In 1911 lunar new year 1/2 (Gregorian calendar 1/31), Dr. Sun Yet Sen traveled everywhere, urging for fundraising via printed gold certificate in order to support the revolution undertaking. Lunar year 6/26 (Gregorian calendar 7/21) established Tiandihui (Chinese Fraternal Organization) fundraising (later named as Citizen Relief Agency). The important job within this organization was handled by the Tongmenghui member who launched fundraising at every town. Lunar year 8/19 (Gregorian calendar 10/10) started the Wuchang revolutionary army uprising. On lunar year 8/24 (Gregorian calendar 10/15), Dr. Sun Yat Sen under the name of Tongmenghui, convened an early congratulation convention of the Republic of China establishment in Chicago. Lunar year 9/16 (Gregorian calendar 11/6), with the present situation being set, San Francisco held a victorious parade celebration. Los Angeles Tongmenghui members also attended this distinguished meeting. At first when the Republic of China was established, the Tongmenghui party changed from a secret organization to a public the political party with new members to be recruited. Therefore, Los Angeles Tongmenghui party became the political party organization.
Chinese Nationalist League of America），翌
In August 1912, US/China Tongmenghui received instructions from Beijing’s Tongmenghui headquarter, that Tongmenghui was to be re-organized as Kuo Ming Tang, and renamed as The Chinese Nationalist League of America at the San Francisco branch. The opening ceremony was held in the following year on 1/12. Los Angeles Tongmenghui was renamed as well as The Chinese Nationalist League of America at the Los Angeles branch. In May of the same year, the US headquarters branch started publishing the US Kuo Ming Tang monthly bulletin. The content included party aﬀairs, report, branch organization chart/announcement, fundraising works, etc.
自民國二年討伐袁世凱失敗，11月4日， 袁世凱解散國民黨。1914年7月8日，孫中山 先生在東京成立中華革命黨。9月1日，通告 海內外所有之國民黨，一律改組為中華革命 黨，但美洲總支部向東京本部力爭，得保留 國民黨名稱。是時，七十餘埠皆設有分部或 通訊處，而每個分部，皆設有閱書報社，國 民黨由是逐漸興盛。
Since the defeat from the Yuan Shikai (senior general of late Qing warlord) crusade, Kuo Ming Tang was dissolved in 11/4. In 7/8/1914, Dr. Sun Yat Sen formed the Chinese revolutionary party in Tokyo. In 9/1, he notified the domestic and overseas Kuo Ming Tang to be reorganized to the Chinese revolutionary party. But the US headquarters branch fought with the Tokyo headquarter, thus able to retain the name of Kuo Ming Tang. At that time, over seventy towns incorporated branches or contact addresses. Also, every branch provided reading material in the form of books and newspapers. Thus Kuo Ming Tang ﬂourished gradually.
1919年10月10日，東京本部改組「中華革 命黨」為「中國國民黨」，三藩市之「中國 國民黨美洲總支部」亦改為「中國國民黨駐 美總支部」，並向美國政府登記立案，成為 合法社團組織，而駐美總支部之名稱亦沿用 至今。
In 10/10/1919, Tokyo headquarter reorganized the Chinese Revolutionary Party to Chinese Kuo Ming Tang. San Francisco’s “Chinese Kuo Ming Tang US headquarter branch” was changed to “Chinese Kuo Ming Tang headquarter branch US based”. Registration was fled at the US government and became a legal party organization. Also this name of “Chinese Kuo Ming Tang headquarter the branch at the US-based” still continued to be used today.
當時，駐美總支部分為東西兩部，美西分 部包括洛杉磯等地區，共有二十五處，美東 分部則有紐約等地共十八處，東、西兩部後 來演變為駐美西支部及美東支部，爾後又增 加美南支部；自此中國國民黨在美國傳統僑 社之黨部即正式形成總支部、支部及分部之 三級組織架構。羅省分部的正式名稱為「中 國國民黨駐美國總支部美西支部羅省分部」 。
At that time, the headquarter branch stationed in the US was divided into the east and west side. West the side included the Los Angeles area, a total of 25 locations. Eastside included New York area, a total of 18 locations. East and west sides later evolved into east branch US-based and west branch US-based. Later added south branch US-based. As a result, Chinese Kuo Ming Tang within the US traditional the party formally took the shape of three organization frameworks:- headquarter branch, branch and subsection. Los Angeles subsection was formally named as “Chinese Kuo Ming Tang US-based Los Angeles west branch”.
