Ida McKinley (personal character).
Named persons
Ida McKinley.


     MRS. MCKINLEY’S FORTITUDE under all the trying circumstances of the President’s assassination was truly remarkable, in view of her frail health and the sheltered, tenderly guarded life she has led. It illustrates the characteristic strength and reticence of the Anglo-Saxon. A woman of the Latin races would most probably have gone into hysterics, but Mrs. McKinley was calm and composed, and hid from her stricken husband and the outside world her poignant grief and anxiety. She sets a noble example of womanly dignity.
