Wilson-McAdoo Wedding Spread, New York Times - Image 1

Eleanor and her new husband, Secretary of the Treasury William McAdoo, were pictured in this New York Times spread the day after the wedding. The bride’s wedding look was chosen on a trip the couple took to the Kurzman’s showroom on Fifth Avenue in New York. Although illustrations of items in the trousseau were released for the wedding, the gown was kept a secret from the public until the wedding day.
