O, FOR HISTORY: The Sorority



Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Nixon, Mrs. Carter, Mrs. Ford, (standing) Mrs. Reagan & Mrs. Bush

This is one of my favorite photographs: a 1991 grouping of The Sorority of former First Ladies.  These were all the first ladies from my life because it captures of my First Ladies I had come to know in my lifetime.  Of these six Sorority members, only Mrs. Carter survives.

I was born ten months after Pres. Kennedy’s assassination and Lady Bird Johnson was my first First Lady.  So I have known:

  1. Lady Bird Johnson
  2. Patricia Nixon
  3. Betty Ford
  4. Roslyn Carter
  5. Nancy Reagan
  6. Barbara Bush
  7. Hillary Clinton
  8. Laura Bush
  9. Michelle Obama

Our current Sorority includes Roslyn Carter, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama.
