The amazing story of Margaret Chase Smith (1897-1995) of Maine, the first woman to serve in both the U.S. House of Representatives (1940-1949) and the United States Senate (1949-1973). She was the first woman to be nominated by a major political party for President of the United States. At that time, upon leaving office she was the longest-serving female U.S. Senator in history. This hard cover book, published in 1990, by Windswept Publishers, is 80 pages of informative text and great historic photos. Shortly before her death, Margaret Chase Smith personally autographed this book under her photo on the inside front cover, making this a scarce and valuable copy that will enhance any historical collection. In excellent condition. Sold as-is.
