Ellie Presents Mamie Doud Eisenhower at the Eisenhower Presidential Library. The lovely lady on the right is Mary Jean Eisenhower, Mamie’s youngest granddaughter.

Mamie was America’s Beloved First Lady from 1953 until 1961. She was also an Army Wife, Mother and Grandmother. She even inspired her own color, Mamie Pink!
Visit with Mamie as she relates her life as Ike’s wife, our first lady and “just a good friend,” which is how she most wanted to be remembered. Mamie didn’t really cook, but she did make some amazing fudge which Ellie also makes and will bring to your event.

Learn from Mamie about living in Panama and the Philippines between the world wars and about her loving relationship with Ike which weathered horrible rumors and long separations. And Oh! Those Bangs!

quote I just wanted to tell you what a delight it was to “have tea with Mamie” earlier this month. You did a beautiful job with her character. I love Mamie. And to have MJ Eisenhower in the audience, no less! Wow. Way to go. It was an educational and entertaining hour. Thank you! And I love how you take questions!
