Edith Bolling Wilson was the second wife of Woodrow Wilson, marrying in 1915 during his first term as president. After President Wilson suffered a stroke, she took an active role in managing his schedule and flow of communications. In this memoir, she claims that she played a role in the “stewardship” of his administration, while other historians have asserted that she took control of the Executive Branch of government.
