President Eisenhower

Newspaper clipping of Nettie Angus Moulden’s February 1, 1955, meeting with President Eisenhower

I recently discovered this Elizabeth (NJ) Daily Journal clipping of Nettie Angus Moulden’s February 1, 1955, meeting with President Eisenhower reported in this previous post. Thanks go to my grandmother for putting it in an envelope for me to find decades later. (Her handwritten date up top is a year off.) Perhaps, Angus descendants will learn something new here. Have a good week, all.

Job Angus’s daughter visits President Eisenhower on the occasion of her 100th birthday

I recently came upon a remarkable little film clip showing Mrs. Nettie Angus Moulden’s February 1, 1955, visit to the White House where she met with President Eisenhower on the occasion of her 100th birthday. (Nettie was in remarkable form and went on to survive almost another 6 years.)

Nettie (1 Feb 1855 – 22 Jan 1961) was the daughter of Antoinette G. Hopper (1823-1899) and Job Angus (1821-1909) about whom much has been written in this blog, Job having been a good friend of President Lincoln, the superintendent of buildings and grounds at the White House, and the manager of many building projects in Washington DC and elsewhere. Job Angus was my 2nd-great-grandfather James Angus‘s brother.

President Eisenhower signed Nettie’s autograph book which already contained the autographs of a number of US Presidents, beginning with President Lincoln and including Pres. Andrew Johnson,  Pres. US Grant, Pres. Benjamin Harrison, and Pres. Grover Cleveland. She had been to all the inaugurations since Lincoln’s and passed away on the eve of JFK’s*.

Nettie’s secret to a long life?: “I like having a good time and being happy—and I like to eat”!
