Coolidge, Grace

Coolidge, Grace (Anna b. Goodhue)

(1879–1957) First Lady; born in Burlington, Vt. She taught at a school for deaf children before she married Calvin Coolidge in 1903. Socially active and personally lively, she was a great asset to the taciturn Coolidge. She was popular as first lady but she suffered from the tragedy of the death of her younger son from blood poisoning.
