Annette Dunlap and Taylor Stoermer talked about the life and influence of first lady Frances Cleveland. The youngest first lady, she was the only one to be married in the White House. Her popularity at a time of the burgeoning of celebrity journalism led to commercialization of her image and such interest in her children that changes were made in copyright law and presidential security.
A video clip was shown of William Allman giving a tour of the wedding venue in the White House. Video clips were shown of Lisa Kathleen Graddy giving a tour of the First Ladies Collection in the National Museum of American History. A silent film clip of Frances Cleveland with Edith Wilson was shown. A portion of a recent telephone interview with President Cleveland’s granddaughter Anne Cleveland Robertson was played.
