C-Span on First Lady Grace Coolidge


Portrait of Grace Coolidge (and Rob Roy) by Howard Chandler Christy, 1924.

Taking place in the summer of 1999, soon after the first major symposium on Coolidge (Calvin Coolidge: Examining the Evidence) at the JFK Library the previous year, is this gem of a tribute to First Lady Mrs. Coolidge brought together by the Coolidge family, Clarke School, Smith College, Forbes Library, and the Coolidge Foundation.

It requires a practiced ear to hear what the Coolidge’s oldest son, John, recounts of his parents but this commemoration is well worth watching. Enjoy!
