Governor Lady: The Life and Times of Nellie Tayloe Ross (MISSOURI BIOGRAPHY SERIES) - gebunden oder broschiert

1970, ISBN: 0826216269

[SR: 2061440], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780826216267], University of Missouri, English, English, English, University of Missouri, Book, University of Missouri, University of Missouri,  Governor Lady is the fascinating story of one of the most famous political women of her generation. Nellie Tayloe Ross was elected governor of Wyoming in 1924—just four years after American women won the vote—and she went on to be nominated for U.S. vice president in 1928, named vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee the same year, and appointed the first female director of the Mint in 1932. Ross launched her career when her husband, William Bradford Ross, the preceding governor, died, leaving her widowed with four sons and no means of supporting them. She was an ironic choice to be such a pioneer in women’s rights, since she claimed her entire life that she had no interest in feminism. Nevertheless, she believed in equal opportunity and advancement in merit irrespective of gender—core feminist values. The dichotomy between Ross’s career and life choices, and her stated priorities of wife and mother, is a critical contradiction, making her an intriguing woman.Exhaustively researched and powerfully written, Governor Lady chronicles the challenges and barriers that a woman with no job experience, higher education, or training faced on the way to becoming a confident and effective public administrator. In addition to the discrimination and resentment she faced from some of her male associates, she also aroused the enmity of Eleanor Roosevelt, whom she displaced at the DNC.Born exactly one hundred years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Ross lived to celebrate the nation’s bicentennial, so her long and remarkable life precisely spanned the second U.S. century. She was reared in the Victorian era, when upper- and middle-class women were expected to be domestic, decorative, and submissive, but she died as the women’s movement was creating a multitude of opportunities for young women of the 1970s. Nellie’s story will be of great interest to anyone curious about women’s history and biography. The contemporary American career woman will especially identify with Ross’s struggle to balance her career, family, , 2397, Political, 2396, Leaders & Notable People, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2445, Women, 2437, Specific Groups, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4861, 20th Century, 4853, United States, 4808, Americas, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 14278871, State & Local, 4853, United States, 4808, Americas, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11232, Social Sciences, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

In 1 Governor Lady" is the fascinating story of one of the most famous political women in America. Nellie Tayloe Ross was born and reared near St Joseph, Missouri. In 1892, she moved with her family to Omaha, Nebraska, where she trained to become a teacher. She taught kindergarten in Omaha for four years before moving, in 1902, to Cheyenne, Wyoming, with her new husband, lawyer William B Ross. In 1922, he was elected governor of that state. When Ross died in 1924, Nellie was asked to complete her husband's term as governor. She reluctantly accepted, and that year Nellie was elected governor of Wyoming, making her the first female state governor. Following her defeat for reelection in 1925, Nellie embarked on a career of writing and speechmaking on the national Chautauqua circuit. In 1928, she was appointed vice chairman of the Democratic National Party. She was drafted to make one of Al Smith's nominating speeches at the national convention that same year, and she even received thirty-one votes for the position of vice president. For the next four years, she directed the DNC Women's Division, and she helped to direct the campaign for the women's vote in both 1928 and 1932. Nellie campaigned for Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1932; in 1933, Roosevelt tapped her to become the first woman appointed as director of the US Mint. Renominated to the post three times by Roosevelt and Truman, Nellie held her position until 1953, when she retired at age 76. Thereafter, she traveled widely through her late 90s. She died in 1977 at the age of 101, having witnessed and participated in the entire second American century. Nellie's story will be of great interest to anyone curious about women's history and biography.
