AAUW’s Meeting at the Edith Bolling Wilson Museum
In April, our local AAUW branch had an opportunity to visit the Edith Bolling Wilson museum. Edith Bolling Galt Wilson, second wife of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, was First Lady of the United States from 1915 to 1921. While Mrs. Wilson publicly minimized publicly minimized her involvement in the affairs of state, her stewardship of governmental duties earned her such labels as “The Secret President” and “The First Woman President’ she is one of the most influential and historically significant women of the twentieth century.
