Before Jackie O, There was Grace Coolidge

Jackie Kennedy has long been renowned for her laudable fashion sense and regal stature. During JFK’s presidency she sparkled on the national stage. Yet there was another first lady who was the Jackie of her time. At Plymouth Notch she is the Queen of all our hearts: Grace Anna Goodhue Coolidge. Wife, mother, and First Lady of the United States, Grace warmed the hearts of all who knew her. She provided the family space and social grace that allowed her husband Calvin to succeed in the White House. The American people recognized what a gem they had in her, and we continue to celebrate the life of this great woman.

Students from Salisbury School Kick Off our Presidential Debate Program!

After a long, sleepy winter at the Notch, the Coolidge Foundation was pleased to welcome 31 high school students from Salisbury School in Connecticut, who came up for a day of learning and debate on Friday, April 17th. Thanks to the generosity of one of their trustees, Mr. John Childs, the students were able to spend the day learning about the benefits and costs of college education. Their debate topic, Resolved: Attending college is worth the cost to students and their families, gave the young men the opportunity to think critically about whether or not a college education would ultimately reap the rewards they hope for.

Coolidge never thought highly of Hoover’s activist sentiments, referring to him as “wonderboy.” Nonetheless, Coolidge supported Hoover in both 1928 and 1932, giving his last public speech in the run-up to the 1932 presidential election in Hoover’s favor.
