Dr. B.L. Wayson Speaks to DAR Chapter on Martha Jefferson Randolph

Dr. Billy Lee Wayson captured the attention of the Williamsburg Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution as he lectured on one of his best known books: "Martha Jefferson Randolph: Republican Daughter and Plantation Mistress". Based on his research of Thomas Jefferson and daughter Martha from personal letters, family papers, and primary historical records, Wayson told the story of how time and circumstances shaped their relationship and carved out a new role in history for the First Daughter. Pictured is Dr. Wayson and his wife Dr. Gail Funke as Dr. Wayson autographed copies of his book for the Williamsburg Daughters.
