Begos, Jane D.; And Others
These documents are designed to help seventh grade students in New York State understand the role of women and the structure and function of the family in both New York and U.S. history. Students are introduced to the state's first two first ladies: Cornelia Tappen Clinton (1744-1800) and Sarah Livingston Jay (1756-1802). Between 1777 and 1804, George Clinton served seven terms as governor of New York, while John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, was elected as the state's chief executive in both 1796 and 1798. Individual profiles of the lives and times of Cornelia Tappen Clinton and Sarah Livingston Jay are featured. A separate document for teachers suggesting educational activities utilizing the profiles of the first ladies is included. (DB)
