Aged: 60.1 years
Legacy: In spite of her grandmotherly appearance and her desire to make everyone comfortable, Caroline Harrison believed in being involved in the society around her "" in her church, her women's clubs, her community and in the nation. Caroline Harrison proved to be ahead of her time in her pursuit of causes: the use of American goods, the President Generalship of the fledgling DAR, the demand for the admittance of women as students to John Hopkins Medical School. She forged ahead with human, intelligence and tact. She balanced her family with her interests and beliefs, and created a well rounded image of intelligence, compassion and artistic ability. She may well have been our most underrated First Lady.

I pity the man who wants a coat so cheap that the man or woman who produces the cloth or shapes it into a garment will starve in the process. … 1891
