Others include presidential wives Eleanor Roosevelt, a wise political partner, civil rights leader and United Nations delegate; Lou Henry Hoover, president of the Red Cross; and Edith Galt Wilson, who after her husband's stroke controlled the White House. Shirley Temple Black, a child movie star who became ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia, and Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor also lived here.
