Mrs. Coolidge

Grace Anna Goodhue Coolidge, wife of President Calvin Coolidge, was First Lady of the United States from 1923-1929. By all accounts she was vivacious, outgoing, and active (in contrast with her husband, who was known as "Silent Cal"), and she was by far the most photographed First Lady up to that time. These photographs are from National Photo.

Visit this collection of funny stories about Calvin Coolidge, who had quite a dry wit.
