District Of Columbia, USA
Death: Dec. 22, 1946
Santa Monica
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Granddaughter of President Woodrow Wilson. Daughter of Eleanor Wilson and Treasury Secretary (later US Senator from California) William Gibbs McAdoo. Her engagement to actor Raphael de Onate in 1934 created a political flap with the linking of the incumbent Democratic senator's daughter to the much-older Filipino actor, in violation of California's mixed-marriage statute. The union was short lived, and in 1938 she married motion picture studio musician William Hinshaw. That marriage also ended in divorce. At the time of her death, she was working as a telephone operator. Cause of death: overdose of sleeping pills.
