2857 Madam Secretary: Frances Perkins, by George Martin (read 7 Apr 1996) This is a 1976 biography of FDR's Secretary of Labor. I found this an exceptionally interesting biography, and it really told me things I did not know, even though I was very conscious of Frances Perkins as Secretary of Labor for much of the time she was such. Her husband was Paul Wilson, but he was often unwell and played little role in her public life. She was active in "settlement work," a strong high-church Episcopalian, and had a rocky time from Martin Dies and others of his ilk in the late 1930's ( )
