Personal Quote:

In Westchester, I always felt I was a woman in a pretty dress that went to dinner parties with Dr. Tarnower. In Washington, I was a woman in a pretty dress and a headmistress. I wasn't sure who I was, and it didn't seem to matter.


In 1977, she became headmistress of ultra-exclusive Madeira school in McLean, Virginia. See more »
