Book News
Frances Folsom Cleveland (known as Frank to her friends and family) was America's youngest first lady, just 21 years old when she married President Grover Cleveland in 1886. This biography goes beneath her reputation for social events and looks at her role in her husband's reelection, her part in keeping her husband's illness a secret, and her promotion of kindergartens, charitable activities, and mission work. The book also details her political activism after she remarried, her contributions to early and higher education, and her work on behalf of the poor. B&w historical photos are included. Dunlap is an independent scholar and journalist. Excelsior Editions is an imprint of State University of New York Press. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
