December 2014 - Las Vegas NV
I had posted photos from the JFK exhibit earlier. I mentioned that I was disappointed in the sparse amount of items on display and the unreasonable entrance fee.
I saved these First Ladies gowns for a separate post.
Worn by Jackie Kennedy
I found this article written by Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings that agrees with what I thought of this dress, not one of Jackie's finest. It was worn at the inaugural.
Alice Lee Roosevelt Longworth
I had to google her and found some interesting data at Wikipedia.
(February 12, 1884 – February 20, 1980) was an American writer and prominent socialite. She was the oldest child of U.S. President Theodore "T.R." Roosevelt, Jr. (1858–1919). She was the only child of Roosevelt and his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee (1861–84).
Alice led an unconventional and controversial life. Her marriage to Representative Nicholas Longworth III (Republican-Ohio), a party leader and 43rd Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, was shaky, and her only child Paulina was a result of her affair with Senator William Edgar Borah of Idaho. She temporarily became a Democrat during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and said in a 60 Minutes interview with Eric Sevareid, televised on February 17, 1974, that she was a "hedonist".
Edith White Bolling Galt Wilson another interesting second wife.
