Scholars and historians considered the role and influence of American first ladies throughout history. Moderator Cokie Roberts posed the question, “Why do we study first ladies?”

“Influence Makers: First Ladies through American History” was a panel of the conference, America’s First Ladies: An Enduring Vision. The conference was the second of three planned at presidential libraries in Texas, and was convened at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas as part of the conference series, “America’s First Ladies: An Enduring Vision.” It was co-sponsored by American University, Southern Methodist University, the White House Historical Association, the National Archives, and the other Texas presidential libraries. close
