- While very aware of the obstacles she faced as a woman, LouHenry succeeded in four careers beyond that of “First Lady”: writer, geologist, architect, and philanthropist. She adroitly used her management skills to promote and expand the Girl Scouts, a non-controversial fit as "FirstLady" but with a lasting national impact on the welfare of women.
