Florence Harding : the first lady, the Jazz Age, and the death of America's most scandalous president by Carl Sferrazza Anthony( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major new biography of the politically powerful forerunner of Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton. Florence Harding reveals the never-before-told story of First Lady Florence Harding's phenomenal rise to power. The daughter of an abusive father in small-town Ohio, mother at a young age to an illegitimate child, Florence Harding saw her escape in Warren Harding, and became the driving force behind his ascent to one of the most scandal-ridden presidencies in United States history. Preeminent First Ladies biographer Carl Sferrazza Anthony not only captures the drama of Florence Harding's personality, but he uses the White House to bring to life Jazz Age America -- a world of speakeasies and Miss America, Babe Ruth, Al Jolson, and the rise of Hollywood. He shows how Florence's friendship with Evalyn McLean, the morphine-addicted owner of the Hope Diamond and The Washington Post was one of the defining bonds in her public life. With newly unsealed medical information, Florence Harding finally unfolds the mystery of whether the First Lady poisoned the President, whose death occurred seventy-five years ago. Florence Harding is a fascinating and informative look at a lost chapter in American history
America's first families : an inside view of 200 years of private life in the White House by Carl Sferrazza Anthony( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Packed with more than 300 photographs from archives and private collections -- many published here for the first time -- entertaining anecdotes, political analysis, the dynamics of family relationships, and behind-the-scenes gossip, America's First Families offers the first up-close look at the families -- from John and Abigail Adams in 1800 to Bill and Hillary Clinton -- who have intrigued and entranced the American public for two centuries. Carl Sferrazza Anthony opens the door to the world's most famous residence to reveal life as it was actually lived there. He takes readers into the heart of loyalties and estrangements, and the emotional pressures that politics brings to bear upon the forty White House families, from their arrivals to their "notices to vacate." Readers will enjoy an unprecedented tour of the previously unseen private rooms as used and decorated by each family. Revealed too are the personal proclivities of the presidents and how their families both sustained them through public crises and were used for political advantage. They'll get a firsthand look at the preparations for White House weddings and other occasions meet the parents and children of the presidents -- as well as eccentric relatives and discover the patterns of working, resting, and relaxing that shaped the nuts and bolts of family life. A magnificent combination of visual delights and insider information, America's First Families is an irresistible invitation to spend some time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

As we remember her : Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, in the words of her family and friends by Carl Sferrazza Anthony( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First Lady Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, childhood friends and dozens of others share their fond recollections of Jackie in As We Remember Her. This is the first time many of these people have ever spoken publicly about her, and the portrait that emerges is quite revealing. Behind the image of one of the 20th-century's most recognizable icons was a surprisingly substantive person -- a woman whose intelligence and political savvy were as remarkable as her famous charm and beauty. Jackie plunged fresh out of college into the world of journalism with her own girl-on-the-street column for the Washington Times. As First Lady, she waged campaigns on behalf of education, the arts and historic preservation, rescuing Washington's famed Lafayette Square from demolition. She was also a primary force in the creation of the National Endowment for the Arts

Ida McKinley : the turn-of-the-century first lady through war, assassination, and secret disability by Carl Sferrazza Anthony( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first full-length biography of Ida Saxton McKinley (1847-1907), the wife of William McKinley, president of the United States from 1897 to his assassination in 1901. Long demeaned by history because she suffered from epilepsy--which the society of her era mistakenly believed to border on mental illness--Ida McKinley was an exceptional woman who exerted a strong influence on her husband's political decisions. Born in Canton, Ohio, Ida Saxton was the eldest of three children. Throughout her youth, Ida was remarkably independent and energetic. She was interested in art, architecture, and current events, and she was sensitive to the plight of working women. In 1871 she married lawyer and Civil War veteran William McKinley. Following the deaths of their two daughters and her mother, Ida's physical condition deteriorated. During the years her husband served as a U.S. congressman and as Ohio governor, her health fluctuated. Throughout William's 1896 presidential campaign, delegations came to the McKinley home in Canton to hear the candidate speak from the front porch. Occasionally, Ida was healthy enough to speak with and meet political figures; sometimes she simply sat to hear his speeches; at other times she was entirely absent. Her husband's devotion to her in her state became an attribute of the campaign. Author Carl Sferrazza Anthony shows that despite her frail health, Ida was determined to fulfill as much of her role as First Lady as she could. She made keen and accurate political observations--particularly in assessing the motives of those ambitious for appointments--and her unrelenting lobbying on behalf of Methodist missionary efforts factored into the president's decision to retain the Philippine Islands for the United States."--Publisher's description

"This elevated position-- " : a catalogue and guide to the National First Ladies' Library and the importance of First Lady history by National First Ladies' Library( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue is an introduction to the National First Ladies' Library and the study of First Lady history. The National First Ladies' Library consists of the Saxton-McKinley House and the Education and Research Center. Located in Canton, Ohio, it is a National Historic Site. The chapters on First Lady history and how it serves as a window to women's history, presedential and political history, and also social and cultural history, are intended as introductory overviews. While these chapters support the National First Ladies' Library mission that First Lady history has been an important and undervalued element in the study of American history, they provide only brief summaries of several examples in each category. Exploration and new research into the fuller story of each woman and how they may have affected history are part of the broader intent the National First Ladies' Library hopes to prompt"--Back cover
