Modern First Ladies

Modern First Ladies

Series editor: Lewis L. Gould

This series of biographical volumes on the twentieth-century first ladies builds upon the University Press of Kansas's substantial presidential studies list. Written for a general audience, each compact volume focuses on the years the first lady spent in the White House, assesses her impact on American history and the institution, and places her public career in the context of the history of first ladies, the presidency, and American women.
