Wilson, Edith (Bollins) Gait, 1927, Biographical Sketch

A WOMAN of wealth and social position, the second wife of President Wilson had lived long in Washington before her marriage to the President. Introduced to the President by his personal physician, Dr. Grayson, some eight months after the death of the first Mrs. Wilson, the two soon found that they bad much in common, and later at the Summer White House at Cornish, New Hampshire, there followed a lovely, old-fashioned courtship. They were married on December 18th, 1915, at the bride's home in Washington and spent their honeymoon at Hot Springs, Va. Possessing keen insight and much personal force of character, Mrs. Wilson became the one reed upon which the President leaned in the trying years that followed. She accompanied him on all of his official missions in this country and abroad.
