Documents associated with this person:

Second wife of the American President Woodrow Wilson.

Her family owned a successful jewelry business. After Wilson's stroke in 1919, she played an important part in supporting him personally and taking over what she called the "stewardship" of government until 1921, resisting the appointment of the then Vice-President, Thomas Riley Marshall, as President. She was variously described as the "secret President," and the "first female President of the United States."
