Presidents' Wives

Book - 1989
Rate this:
On October 2, 1919, Woodrow Wilson suffered a major stroke which paralyzed his left side and robbed him of speech. His wife, Edith, was a strong-minded woman who chose for much of the president's remaining 15 months in office to make governmental decisions and help the president sign documents based on what she thought he would have done.Many of the 44 women in this book served as First Lady (though few had the sway of Mrs. Wilson); others did not live to see their husbands inaugurated, or were divorced before that occasion. But each in her own way helped shape and support the career of a United States president, and in doing so contributed something of herself to the nation's history.
