Author and history professor Cynthia Kierner talked about her book, Martha Jefferson Randolph, Daughter of Monticello, and discussed the impact and importance of Thomas Jefferson’s daughter. She also responded to questions from the audience.

As the oldest and favorite daughter of Thomas Jefferson, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson Randolph was extremely well educated, traveled in the circles of presidents and aristocrats, and was known on two continents for her particular grace and sincerity. Yet, as mistress of a large household, she was not spared the tedium, frustration, and great sorrow that most women of her time faced. Ms. Kierner is professor of history and director of the Ph.D. program in history and art history at George Mason University. close
