Description: “(1879-1957) First Lady 1923-29. Graduating from Univ. of Vermont 1902, she taught at the Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, Mass. where she met Calvin Coolidge; they wed in 1905. In 1921, as wife of the Vice President, she was the most popular woman in the capital. After Harding’s death, she planned the new administration’s social life as her husband wanted it: unpretentious but dignified. Younger son Calvin died suddenly on July 7, 1924 at 16, but she never let grief interfere with her duties as First Lady. Tact and gaiety made her one of the most popular White House hostesses and she left Washington in 1929 with the country’s respect and love. She received a gold medal from the National Institute of Social Sciences, and in 1931 was voted one of America’s 12 greatest living women.
