Lou Henry Hoover: Activist First Lady

SKU H1257
Although overshadowed by her higher-profile successors, Lou Henry Hoover was in many ways the nation’s first truly modern First Lady. She was the first to speak on the radio and give regular interviews. She was the first to be a public political persona in her own right. And, although the White House press corps saw in her “old-fashioned wifehood,” she very much foreshadowed the "new woman" of the era. This work brings into focus one of the forgotten first ladies of the 20th century.
