  • In Memoriam
In honor of former Representative Lindy Boggs, who passed away Saturday, July 27th at the age of 97, LPB will air Lindy Boggs: Steel & Velvet tonight at 9PM and Thursday, August 1st at 7PM on LPB-HD. This program chronicles the life of Mrs. Boggs, who also became the first woman to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See in Vatican City. During her tenure, Mrs. Boggs spearheaded legislation on everything from civil rights to equal pay for women. She also helped to establish the Women’s Congressional Caucus. She still holds the distinction of being the only woman with a room named for her in the U.S. Capitol Building.
