Trude Feldman: Indefatigable and Relentless White House Reporter Who Got Access

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Trude Feldman, White House Reporter Who Got Access, Dies at 97”:

Trude Feldman, a second-string member of the White House press corps whose insistent approach to seeking access and softball questions won her exclusive interviews with American presidents and other world leaders, died on Jan. 23 in Washington….

Ms. Feldman interviewed every president from Lyndon B. Johnson to George W. Bush. For McCall’s magazine, she wangled the first interview with Richard M. Nixon and his wife, Pat, after the president resigned in 1974. She went on to be granted the final presidential interviews with Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan as well as with Mr. Bush.
