Calvin Coolidge was born in
1872 in Plymouth, Vermont.
After graduation from Amherst,
he practiced law in North-ampton,
served in the State Senate and two
terms as Governor, and in
1920 was elected Vice Presi-dent
to Warren G. Harding.
Grace Goodhue Coolidge was
born in 1879. She attended the
University of Vermont where she
was know to be gracious and fun-loving.
She took training for and
always had an interest in teaching
the deaf. She married Calvin
Coolidge in 1905.
President Calvin Coolidge took the oath of office as President in 1923 on the death of Warren G. Harding. In 1924 Coolidge was nominated and elected
at a time of national prosperity. He was not in favor of government regulation of business or the economy. Coolidge lighted the first National Christmas
tree on the White House lawn. He chose not to run for re- election in 1928 and retired to Northampton where he died in 1933.
While Coolidge was known to keep a finger in White House domestic affairs, Grace Coolidge took no part in her husband's political life. Coolidge never
enjoyed social affairs, but his wife charmed everyone and always had a warm and interested smile for guests. As her contribution to the White House, she
left a spread for the Lincoln bed that she crocheted, a block each month. She continued to work for better education for the deaf until her death in 1957.
