Julie Nixon Eisenhower is an American author who is the younger daughter of Richard Nixon, 37th President of the United States, and First Lady Pat Nixon. Through her husband David, she is also the granddaughter in-law of 34th President Dwight D. Eisenhower and First Lady Mamie Eisenhower.
Born in Washington, D.C. in 1948, while her father was a Congressman, Julie and her elder sister, Patricia Nixon Cox, grew up in the public eye. Her father was elected U.S. Senator from California when she was two and Vice President of the United States when she was four. Her 1968 marriage to David Eisenhower was seen as a union between two of the most prominent political families in the United States.
Throughout the Nixon administration, Julie worked as Assistant Managing Editor of The Saturday Evening Post while holding the unofficial title of "First Daughter." She was widely noted as one of her father's most vocal and active defenders and was named one of the "Ten Most Admired Women in America" for four years by readers of Good Housekeeping magazine in the 1970s.
