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.

On this day in 1969, Apollo 11 made thirty orbits of the moon which allowed
them to view the landing site: the southern Sea of Tranquility, one of the
most suitably flat areas. This area had confirmed by the
Apollo 10 ‘dress
rehearsal’ mission
in which the crew captured vital film footage and photos 
while orbiting the moon.
