Book Description:
Caroline Scott Harrison was the friendly, enthusiastic and intelligent wife of the twenty-third President of the United States, Benjamin Harrison. She was a graduate of Oxford Female Institute in Oxford, Ohio, where her father, an advocate for womenís education, was president of the school. In 1889, she walked gracefully into the limelight of the First Ladyís position, confidently assuming leadership in a number of activities and accomplishing much through the next three years. She had little fear of performing social duties in Washington.
She learned to use the power of the First Ladyís office to influence special requests. When Johns Hopkins Hospital asked her for help in raising funds for their medical school, she challenged them to improve the status of women. And establishing the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution as the first president general required much more responsibility than an honorary chair implies.
