American First Ladies
Robert P. Watson
Salem Press, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 439 pages
The much-anticipated companion to Salem Press's The American Presidents, American First Ladies takes a fascinating, and often surprising look at the "other" occupants of the White House. All 44 First Ladies are here, from Martha Washington to Laura Bush. Each life is detailed in a biographical essay, with sidebars discussing the president and a well-known episode or anecdote about the First Lady herself. Contributors have been hand-recruited by the editor and include scholars well known in the academic community for their interest and expertise in this area.
