The First Lady Who Never Was

Philosophy & First Ladies editor Paul Hehn has published a new profile of not-quite-First-Lady Anna Harrison.

You may recall that her husband, William Henry Harrison, died 30 days after giving a 100-minute whopper of an inaugural speech, in the snow, without a hat or coat. Anna was still back in Ohio, packing, when he died.

Discover the whole nutty story in our new profile.

(William Henry Harrison, incidentally, was the first president touched by what used to be called The Curse of Tecumseh.)
