Margaret Thatcher, Sixteen Years Ago–Or Was it Seventeen?–this Spring

Under deadline pressure today, I’ve lacked the time to write about Margaret Thatcher. But when I got home this evening, I found that my wife had riffled through a few shoeboxes of old photographs, finding these, taken when Baroness Thatcher visited the Hoover Institution. We can’t place the date, exactly, but in two months the little girl with the bow in her hair will graduate from college. Since they demonstrate that she enjoyed talking to children, I realize, these pictures in their own small way add to our knowledge of someone who now belongs to history, proving that the Iron Lady iron. Requiescat in pace.
