Join us on Thursday, April 29 at 5pm (ET) for the next conversation in our First Ladies Program Series. Katherine Jellison—Professor of History at Ohio University and television/radio commentator on first ladies—will discuss how most first ladies follow the four traditional archetypes: celebrity, controversial, reluctant, or political partner. Jellison’s presentation will highlight Dolley Madison, Lucy Hayes, and Betty Ford, among others. Foundation Executive Director Patrick Madden will lead the audience Q&A from Martha to Melania following her presentation.
