President Ford and Wolf Trap

With the nation celebrating the life of the late President Gerald R. Ford this seems like a good time to share this photo from Wolf Trap's archives. In the undated photo above, President Ford is pictured with Wolf Trap founder Catherine Filene Shouse (center) and an unidentified guest.

President Ford appointed Mrs. Shouse to the Commission on Presidential Scholars in 1975. Two years later, he bestowed upon her The Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest United States civilian award.
