First Ladies

America's First Ladies - The Best, the Worst, and the Strangely Forgotten

The role of First Lady comes with no job description, no pay, and no written requirements. Yet America’s presidential spouses have wielded great influence and have always been subject to intense public scrutiny. In this fascinating illustrated lecture, historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., explores which First Ladies have rated highest and lowest or most in between with historians. Who do you think was best or worst? Why were some so vilified? And what might the future hold for the role of the American First Lady?

Friday, April 29 1:30 pm

Tickets: $25 in advance/$30 day of the event.
