ICON | Alice Roosevelt

"Alice was known to slide miniature bottles of whiskey in her elbow-length gloves and smuggle them into teetotaling houses so she could present them to her male dinner partners. In her purse, she could be counted on to carry four essentials: cigarettes, a fertility image (no doubt sanctioned by the R.S.C.), her green snake named Emily Spinach (after her thin aunt), and a copy of the Constitution." —Stacy A. Cordery (an excerpt from Alice: Alice Roosevelt Longworth, from White House Princess to Washington Power Broker)
