History and Social Sciences


The Tawdry Tales and Travails of the First Ladies

You do not want to miss this new series. They have all but been forgotten...oh sure, we remember a few...but it is the ones whose names are long lost that are the most fun to get to know. History has never been so much fun. Learn about Mulatto Jack, the Rose of Long Island, Sahara Sarah, second-sight, and of course the usual sex and sin sometimes associated with the White House. Your presenter, Pam Watson, has a lively and humorous style that is sure to keep you laughing, informed, and never asleep!

This series is taught by Pam Watson who started this series at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at CSU Long Beach. She has gone on the road and taught this course at Humboldt and Fresno States to OLLI participants.

Teacher and Facilitator: Pam Watson is a retired English and science teacher with an AA, BA in communications and a credential in English.
