Alice Blech, social secretary in the Taft administration, 1909

“When Mrs. Taft set out to find a social secretary she looked about for a cultured, sensible, level-headed person who understood taking care of correspondence and would attend to her own affairs to the exclusion of all others.” She found 26-year old Alice Blech, a dark and pretty woman “who speaks with a slight German accent but expresses herself in easy, graceful English.”

—The Idaho Statesman, 1909
