On Exhibit: Roosevelt, Edith Kermit Carow, 1861-1948--Correspondence

First Lady Edith Kermit Roosevelt, wife of Teddy, was a dear friend and frequent correspondent of Marion King, librarian at the New York Society Library. Their letters are on display from now through the end of the year as part of NYSL's exhibition, "The President's Wife and the Librarian." (Paper Cuts is going.) If you're a first lady aficionado, you'll be pleased to learn that Mrs. Roosesvelt's biographer, Silvia Jukes Morris, will give a lecture on April 30.
