Pat Nixon book

Pat Nixon: The Untold Story by Julie Nixon Eisenhower (1986)

"I will always reject the concept of a 'plastic Pat' or 'Barbie doll' that others mistook to be the 'real' Pat Nixon. She was the warmest First Lady I covered and the one who loved people the most. I think newspeople who covered her saw a woman who was sharp, responsive, sensitive, and instinctively protective of her loved ones." Helen Thomas, chief of United Press International (White House Bureau) and author of Dateline: White House (1975) and Front Row at the White House: My Life and Times (1999)
