Doug Wead and Mary Achor are collaborating in the research and writing of a book on the brothers and sisters of the American presidents. It is a groundbreaking project which will encompass the successes and failures of the presidents’ siblings. Their work, their marriages, their scandals, their successes. How did they rival their brothers? Who among them almost became president themselves? Who among them are still living and where do they live? Their relationships with the presidents. Brothers and sisters? Individual biographies of the siblings of the presidents.
