Betty Ford

Betty Ford, 1977

Newly added to the website are two portraits of Betty Ford. They were made during a Sitting with her husband, President Gerald Ford, right at the end of his presidency, in January, 1977. As First Lady from 1974 to 1977, she was active in social policy and set a precedent as a politically active presidential spouse.
