Sheridan Kalorama

—Call Box Restoration Project —

Sheridan-Kalorama has been home to many influential women. While she lobbied our political leaders to support Nationalist China, Madame Chiang Kai-Shek lived nearby at 2443 Kalorama Rd. Others include presidential wives Eleanor Roosevelt, a wise political partner, civil rights leader and United Nations delegate; Lou Henry Hoover, president of the Red Cross; and Edith Galt Wilson, who after her husband's stroke controlled the White House. Shirley Temple Black, a child movie star who became ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia, and Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor also lived here.

About the artist: Peter Waddell, artist, specializes in images of 18th and 19th century Washington

Art on Call, a program of Cultural Tourism DC, funded in part by the Commission on Arts and Humanities, the Department of Transportation, and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development.
