It is said that behind every successful man is a woman. In the case of American presidents this maxim is especially true, and the woman is not necessarily his wife. From the domineering interference of Sara Delano Roosevelt, to the humanitarian ideals of Lillian Carter, this program will explore the relationships and influences these women had in shaping the personalities of American presidents from FDR to Clinton. Join American history educator Martha Kolodkin for this fascinating glimpse into the lives and personalities of the women who raised extraordinary sons. No registration required.
