Elizabeth Virginia Wallace Truman was known as Bess and has been widely quoted when it comes to the ghosts of Presidents past stalking 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "I'm sure they're here," her husband, President Harry Truman once complained, "and I'm not half so alarmed at meeting up with any of them as I am at having to meet the live nuts I have to see every day." Bess, the story goes, once opened the door to a knock and reported seeing Abraham Lincoln standing there. "What can I do for you, Mr. President?" she apparently asked. With that, Lincoln sensibly vanished.
