Welcome to 


The Potomac Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club, was chartered in April 1967. It encompasses the area of Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Current membership approaches one Hundred. Our members hail from as far away, as New Zealand, the states of Hawaii, Florida, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Our mission is well defined in our Chapter Bylaws.




Lynda Markley Welsh

In Memoriam

May 1, 2020

The Potomac Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club lost a dynamic member whose contributions to our organization were many. Lynda Markley Welsh, 74, of Germantown, Maryland, passed away unexpectedly at home on May 1, 2020. She was the loving wife of Murray Welsh, her husband of nearly 26 years. She enjoyed riding with Murray in their beautiful 1950 4-door Champion as they traveled to numerous Potomac Chapter meetings, picnics, chapter tours and other Studebaker events over the years. Lynda served as Editor of the Potomac Chapter’s newsletter, “The Commander,” for many years and won multiple awards from the SDC for her editing and publishing the chapter’s in-house publication. She had been a printing specialist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, from which she retired after 37 years. Donations in Mrs. Welsh’s memory may be made to the American Diabetes Foundation.
