Our first episode features a woman who achieved many notable firsts, a political leader who used her voice to better her community, implement and sustain diplomacy, and develop her own potentiality: Eugenie Andersonthe first woman to be named a United States Ambassador.
Here is our story for today about United States ambassador, Mrs. Among the very high officials of the United States government, there are some who do their work not in Washington D.
These officials are called ambassadors. Ambassadors have the job of representing the United States in the country to which they are assigned. The ambassadors go to live in the other country, and, in short, they try to help the United States and the other country to understand each other, and to make important agreements between two governments.
And untilall American ambassadors had been men. So it was that a housewife and mother from a small Minnesota town became the first woman ever to hold the position of United States ambassador.
You might well expect that a young girl who would grow up to become an important government official would have shown an early interest in politics, power, and government, but this certainly was not the case with the young Eugenie. Oh mother, you startled me.
Yes mother, thank you for reminding me. And by the way, your playing sounds wonderful! From the time Eugenie Anderson was a little girl, she played the piano. She loved music and wanted to become a concert pianist. The music of the classical piano led her interests all through her college years. She even attended the famed Juilliard School of Music.
She never dreamed of being an ambassador, or anybody in the offices of government. Untilit was music that held her heart.
InEugenie married John Anderson, also an artist, a painter, and photographer. Together, they made their home in Red Wing, Minnesota. Two children, a daughter Johanna, and a son, Hans, were born.
And the family life of the Andersons was a happy one. The rise of the German Dictator, Adolph Hitler. She thought of her own children, she was shocked and horrified by the thought of five-year-olds acting as soldiers.
It was this questioning that led Eugenie into politics. She began in small, but very important ways to improve the world for her children. In Red Wing, she joined the League of Women Voters, and soon she started a school lunch program, and a day care program for the school children of Red Wing.
Soon, Eugenie became active in political campaigns, making many trips from Red Wing to the Twin Cities. She supported and worked with Hubert Humphrey, and later with John F.
She was gifted not only with musical ability, but with an understanding of all kinds of people, and a great talent for warm, personal communication. She was a brilliant public speaker and was able to speak without a written text. Eugenie proved to be such an able campaigner and worked so well with all kinds of people, that the highest political officials were deeply impressed.
Though she had been involved in politics for only five years, and had not held an office, she seemed a natural choice for a diplomatic post.Menconi+ Schoelkopf Charles Biederman (–) October 13 to November 6, Foreword We are delighted to offer this selection of works illustrating the depth and breadth of Charles Biederman’s extraordinary oeuvre.
