LIZ CARPENTER
Color photograph of Carpenter in the garden of the White House!
Photograph signed: "Best wishes/Liz Carpenter". Color, 8x10¼. Reporter, speechwriter, media advisor, author and feminist Elizabeth "Liz" Sutherland Carpenter (1920-2010) began covering the White House and Congress for the "Austin American-Statesman" in 1942. In 1961, after 18 years of reporting, she joined the staff of Lyndon B. Johnson during his campaign for the vice presidency. After the election of John F. Kennedy and LBJ, Carpenter became the first woman to serve as an Executive Assistant to a Vice President. In Dallas on the fateful day that JFK was assassinated, Carpenter wrote the 58-word address that LBJ would deliver to the American people on his return to Washington. Upon LBJ's succession to the presidency, Carpenter became the first professional newswoman to serve as Press Secretary for a First Lady. While working for Lady Bird Johnson from 1963-1969, she also contributed to speeches for LBJ. In 1969, she detailed her White House experiences in her book, Ruffles & Flourishes. Two years later, Carpenter was one of the founders of the National Women's Political Caucus, and she traveled the country tireless on behalf of passage of the ERA. Carpenter, who has written numerous books and articles, was also a popular lecturer. Slightly creased and yellowed at blank margins and corners. Minor surface creases and smudges (most not evident head on). Overall, fine condition.
