A “man’s field”

Lou Hoover, whose husband was president from 1929-1933, was the first woman to graduate from Stanford with a degree in the “man’s field” of geology.

“That we have the right to vote means nothing,” she once said. “That we use it in the right way means everything.”

Hoover is one of the First Ladies featured in an exhibit at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas.
