At a Women’s National Press Club dinner in Washington, President Johnson declared, “I want to make a policy statement.  I am unabashedly in favor of women.”  Vowing to end a “stag Government,” he announced the appointment of nine women to Federal posts.  Chief among the appointments was that of Katharine Elkus White ’28 as United States Ambassador to Denmark.  Mrs. White’s father, Abram I. Elkus, served as ambassador to Turkey during President Woodrow Wilson’s presidency.
