Description

Handwritten note from Congresswoman Edith Nourse Rogers to E. Mildred Brennan that may have been altered for a scrapbook. On the back is a newspaper clipping of a photograph of Edith Nourse Rogers.

Edith Nourse Rogers ran for her husband's congressional seat after his death in 1925 and she won the special election. She was re-elected eighteen times, and served on the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Civil Service Committee. In 1947, she became the ranking Republican member of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs and served as chair until 1949. Rogers sponsored and helped to draft the 1944 G.I. Bill of Rights, which gave returning World War II veterans the chance to go to college, obtain job training, and receive low-interest loans to purchase homes.
