Garfield, Lucretia Rudolph, 1927, Biographical Sketch

MRS. GARFIELD met her future husband while attending a co-educational institution and their marriage is the first romance of "co-eds" in the matrimonial story of the Presidency. Their wedding was solemnized at Hiram, Ohio, where the bridegroom was President of the Electric Institute, and through which he had originally worked his way, first as a janitor, and afterwards, as a tutor. Of their children, Harry A., a lawyer became president of Williams College; James R., another lawyer, was Secretary of the Interior, under Roosevelt, and Abram became an architect.
