Author Biography
Clinton, Hillary (Author)
Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton was born on October 26, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois to Dorothy and Hugh Rodham. She grew up in Park Ridge, Illinois with her two younger brothers.

She attended Wellesley College, beginning in 1965, graduated with honors and enrolled in Yale Law School, which is where she met Bill Clinton.

In 1974, she joined the Impeachment Inquiry staff of the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House Representatives to work on the Watergate impeachment proceedings. She then left Washington to go to Arkansas, where she married Bill Clinton in 1975. They both taught on the law faculty of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. In 1980, their daughter Chelsea was born.

Hillary chaired the Arkansas Education Standards Committee, founded the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital and introduced a pioneering program called Arkansas' Home Instruction Program for Preschool youth, which trains parents to work with their children in preschool preparedness and literacy. Hillary was named Arkansas Woman of the Year in 1983 and Arkansas Mother of the Year in 1984.
