NELLIE TAYLOE ROSS BIOGRAPHY PUBLISHED

Dick Johnson writes: "While channel surfing Saturday morning I
came upon a book discussion on a biography of Nellie Tayloe Ross.
The author, Teva J. Scheer, spoke at length about her subject,
who broke a couple of gender barriers in America. Ross was the
first governor of a state (Wyoming) and the first female Director
of the Mint (under Franklin D. Roosevelt).

Thanks to C-Span 2 we learned from the author that Ross ran for
governor to replace her deceased husband because she was broke.
The author researched her entire life and found this was a
constant trait -- striving for a goal and achieving it.

The book, entitled "Governor Lady - The Life and Times of Nellie
Tayloe Ross" was published November 3, 2005. It calls itself the
"official Nellie Tayloe Ross" biography (perhaps the only one?).
Amazon.com has it available at $22.02."
