John D. Eisenhower, son of President Dwight Eisenhower, reflects on Kay Summersby.
Well the thing is that they had already been talked about and my Dad and Kay Summersby, and so they were using this as evidence, in spite of the fact that it was a gang that went. Kay Summersby made a real contribution to the war. She was a very positive influence. If you remember that Mary Tyler Moore series on television, she was the Mary Tyler Moore of the office, and Dad certainly had an affection for her, no question about that. But she performed real service, I think, I was fond of her, and I think she liked me too. Any allegations to make this look like a terrible thing was all in the minds of the people who were doing the allegating, as far as I'm concerned.
