A Senator's Wife Remembers: From the Great Depression to the Great Society
The remembrances of Henrietta McCormick Hill, compiled by her daughter Henrietta Hill Hubbard, give insight into the political career of Alabama senator Joseph Lister Hill, and into the courtship, marriage, and later life of the couple. Among topics covered are Senator Hill's work for health legislation, including the Hill-Burton and Hill-Harris Acts, and the couple's reaction to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Told through personal stories and vignettes, A Senator's Wife Remembers is a unique and welcoming political memoir.
