William Howard Taft as Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, the job he much preferred to the presidency. Taft is the only American EVER to serve in all 3 branches of the government. Below is Helen “Nellie” Taft – William Howard Taft’s wife; she was the first lady to own and drive a car, to ride in her husband’s inaugural parade, to support women’s suffrage, to publish her memoirs, to smoke cigarettes, and successfully lobby for safety standards in federal workplaces.
She helped pave the way, ladies.
