Ladies, First Podcast: July 12, 2018

Ep. 11 The Controversies of Julia Gardiner Tyler

The media loved airing Julia Gardiner Tyler’s dirty laundry and after leaving the White House she fought to reclaim her title of first lady. Dr. Christopher Leahy and his wife and fellow historian, Sharon Williams Leahy, spoke with us about one of America’s most vivacious and strong-minded first ladies.

Featured Guests
Christopher J. Leahy, Professor of History, Keuka College
Sharon Williams Leahy, Historian

There is so much more to the elite sorority of first ladies than fashion and state dinners. The Ladies, First podcast mini-series takes an informative, and entertaining look at our first ladies’ legacies and how their leadership has shaped our nation and the international community.
