THE EGG ROLLS
Hum ... dogs, hum ... 1933, hum.......
Ready for another question? This one is a toughie!
Isn't history fun? Hum, let's see - Vice President, hum ......., 1941, hum
......... , wives of vice president of the United States, hum......
Rabbit's FOOTnote: Researchers, we started our search at
www.vicepresidents.com where we located a listing of Vice Presidents and their wives.
Next it was on to www.google.com. By typing in "Ilo wife Henry Wallace vice president United
States" a number of sites appeared. (Our favorite site was "Rogers on
Henry Wallace.") Along the way do you know what we found out? Henry A.
Wallace's dad was Henry Cantwell Wallace. He too served as a Vice President of
the United States. Yes it's true. Henry C. was Vice President under Presidents
Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge. Students let us know if you impress a
teacher with this bit of history! Don't forget you can read more about it
at your local library!
