George H. W. Bush Papers. 1942 - 2004. Dorothy Walker Bush Materials

1918-1962

This series contains newspaper clippings and columns related to George H. W. Bush's mother, Dorothy Walker Bush. One clipping documents Dorothy Walker Bush's participation in the Girls National Championship for tennis in 1918. Copies of the newspaper column "Washington Life," written by Dorothy Walker Bush during her husband Prescott Sheldon Bush's term in the U.S. Senate, cover 1959 to 1962, but are not a complete set of the column. The columns detail events in Washington, DC such as the opening of Congress, the State of the Union, entertainment at the White House, and comments on the political leaders of the time. Her January 17, 1962 column mentions her recent visit to George and Barbara Bush in Houston, Texas.
