Could a First Lady of the United States from more than 100 years ago influence today’s generation? Helen Taft’s great granddaughter (and millennial) Patricia Taft seeks to prove just that. Helen became first lady in 1909, yet her trailblazing practices, tactics, and policies remain directly applicable to today’s historical, cultural, and political climates.

Join us for our virtual History Happy Hour program on Thursday, June 8 at 6:00 pm in a conversation focused on how Helen Taft was a First Lady of another time, before her time. We hope to see you there!
