Edith Roosevelt biographer Lewis Gould talks about the first lady’s views on race and his findings in her private correspondence. Mr. Gould said that the conventional wisdom about the former first lady is that she “never put a foot wrong in the White House.” But, he argues that a careful reading of her private correspondence reveals racial views that go beyond what he calls the “genteel bigotry” of her time. Mr. Gould spoke at the National Archives. close
