MAMIE DOUD EISENHOWER.
First Lady, 1953-1961.
Photograph signed: "Mamie Doud Eisenhower". B/w with sepia hue, 8x10 overall, image 7½x8¼ (one surface). Signed in margin beneath photo. According to stamp on verso, this photograph was taken in Washington, D.C. in April 1957 by Tom Hoy. "Courtesy of the Evening Star-the Sunday Star, Washington, D.C." It was reproduced by the U.S. Army Photographic Agency at the Pentagon. On July 1, 1916, 19-year old Mamie Geneva Doud married 25-year-old 2nd Lieutenant Dwight D. Eisenhower in Denver, Colorado. They had two sons: Dwight Doud Eisenhower (1917-1920) and John Sheldon Doud Eisenhower, born in 1923. As an Army wife for 37 years, Mamie grew accustomed to entertaining groups of influential people, a talent she drew on as the White House hostess. On July 1, 1966, the Eisenhower's became just the third presidential couple to have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. John and Abigail Adams and John Quincy and Louisa Adams were the other two. On December 22, 1968, three months before the former President died at the age of 78, Dwight and Mamie's grandson, Dwight David Eisenhower II, married Julie Nixon, the daughter of Eisenhower's Vice President. Mamie, who survived "Ike" by ten years and 218 days, died in Washington, D.C. on November 1, 1979, at the age of 82. Lightly curled. Lightly creased at corners. Yellow stains at lower border touch the "mie" in Mamie. Overall, fine condition.
