Alice Roosevelt Longworth: A Rare Recording of Her Voice
In a recent post about Thomas Mallon’s Watergate: A Novel I made mention of the beloved old crone of a character, Alice Roosevelt Longworth. She has made for many an interesting story in her lifetime, and Mallon had pure fun with her in his book.
I tried to find some footage of her on You Tube and could only locate a rare recording of her voice. It intrigued me–and that was good enough reason to post it on my blog. Thanks for photo and video to Carl Anthony.
Please note the writing on the pillow–marvelous!
