The American First Lady: Part II

From 1963 to 1989, Ladybird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter and Nancy Reagan each served as First Lady.  They were wives, mothers and confidants to the most powerful men in the world. The Constitution does not assign any responsibilities to this challenging role, sometimes described as the most demanding volunteer job in America. Although not elected, they occupied their own place on the international stage and were often subject to intense public scrutiny. This visual history lecture will highlight the personal side of life in the White House and the unique contributions of these five women. Register at www.myrml.org or call 631-283-0774 x 523.
