We need the past participle form to indicate what happened in the past before 1897. Also, the sentence should start with 'While'.

Which leaves us with C and E. The correct phrase is 'in support of' hence C.

A it is.

While is wrong here. Only Where is applicable. And also past participle.

While can be used when two actions occur simultaneously.
