First Lady Bess Truman, wife of the Harry Truman – the 33rd President of the United States, was the only twentieth-century first lady to never give an interview during her husband’s presidency. Not only did she disliked being First Lady, Bess discontinued Eleanor Roosevelt’s First Lady press conferences. Bess did as little entertaining and social events as possible during her time in the White House. After President Truman’s presidency, the couple moved back to their home in Independence, Missouri, where they stayed until their deaths.
