Senator Margaret Chase Smith was the first woman to run for president and is famous for her “Declaration of Conscience” speech against Senator Joseph McCarthy. Isabel Whittier, part of Brunswick’s Skolfield-Whittier family, pursued an academic career, teaching at Hunter and Brooklyn Colleges, and authored several books.
