"This catalogue is an introduction to the National First Ladies' Library and the study of First Lady history. The National First Ladies' Library consists of the Saxton-McKinley House and the Education and Research Center. Located in Canton, Ohio, it is a National Historic Site. The chapters on First Lady history and how it serves as a window to women's history, presedential and political history, and also social and cultural history, are intended as introductory overviews. While these chapters support the National First Ladies' Library mission that First Lady history has been an important and undervalued element in the study of American history, they provide only brief summaries of several examples in each category. Exploration and new research into the fuller story of each woman and how they may have affected history are part of the broader intent the National First Ladies' Library hopes to prompt"--Back cover.
