Margaret Woodrow Wilson

This black-and-white photographic portrait of Margaret Woodrow Wilson was taken around October 1, 1912. Margaret Woodrow Wilson was the eldest of President Woodrow Wilsons three daughters, born in Georgia on April 16, 1886. In 1913, the Wilsons moved into the White House, but Margarets mother and first lady, Ellen Axson Wilson, passed away the next year. Margaret stepped in as White House hostess until her father married Edith Bolling Galt in 1915. Later in life, Margaret Wilson made a spiritual journey to India and lived in an ashram until her death in 1944.
