In past years, we’ve done quizzes about Washington himself, and about the other 44 men to succeed him. There hasn’t been a woman president yet, so for this year’s quiz, we’ve decided to write up some questions about the next closest thing: first ladies.

 

1) Who was the first woman to act as first lady despite not being married to the president?

 

2) Which first lady, a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, met her husband after being assigned to mentor him at the law firm where they both worked?

 

3) Which first lady temporarily resided at the Octagon House in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington, D.C.?

 

4) Which first lady married her husband during his term of presidential office?

 

5) Which first lady used a nickname on her marriage license?

 

6) Which first lady’s memoir was published 73 years after her death?

 

7) Which first lady was dubbed the “second-most powerful person in the United States” by Time magazine during her husband’s term in office?

 

8) Which first lady was the first to appear on a U.S. postage stamp?

 

9) Which first lady wrote a widely syndicated newspaper column titled “My Day”?

 

10) Which first lady endowed the first hospital in the United States devoted to children’s care?
