FIRST FEMALE WHITE HOUSE STAFFER


       (1864 – 1941)

President Benjamin Harrison welcomed Alice Sanger as
the first female
White House staffer on January 2, 1890.

During an otherwise uneventful presidency remarkable
only for allowing Congress a free-for-all in spending public
funds, Alice Sanger’s appointment may have been an olive
branch to the growing
women’s suffrage movement that
had gathered momentum during Harrison’s presidency.
