Title Virginia Smith A Nebraska Treasure
Author Hart, Jack
Publisher J & L Lee Co.
Summary History of Virginia Smith's 1975-1991 U.S. representative political life. She entered Congress at the age of 64, representative of a generation of women who rarely contemplated politics, as a career at any stage of their lives. She was a conservative Republican, without a fancy educational pedigree. Karl Rove said "she had an extraordinary intellect that cleared a path into her memory for an endless accumulation of information-ranging from details of the federal budget for 25 years before she ever needed to know them in Congress, to the recall of an infinite number of personal names." Her retirement announcement was made on June 1, 1989. She retired in Sun City West, AZ. Foreward by Clayton Yeutter. Preface by Karl Rove.
