Harding, Florence Kling, 1927, Biographical Sketch

"MAIN STREET is moving into the White House," a bystander in Washington remarked at the inauguration of President Harding. Instead of resenting the indictment, Mr. and Mrs. Harding made a boast of it and admitted that they were "just folks." The President was Mrs. Harding's second matrimonial venture. Her first marriage to Henry De Wolfe, who later died, ended in divorce— an experience for which the President's unceasing devotion brought lasting consolation. More high-spirited than the President, and perhaps more ambitious, Mrs. Harding broke under the demands of official life, and for a considerable period of her occupancy of the White House was confined to her room. Her own death followed that of her husband by only a little more than a year.
