~ Harry W Blair married Emily Newell, his former high school classmate, in 1900, and the couple had two children: Newell Blair, a Washington lawyer and businessman who founded three legal newsletters, and a daughter whose married name was Mrs. N.M. Forsythe. Mrs. Blair was perhaps more well-known than her husband, and was likely at least partially responsible for his government career. She was a political activist, suffragist, and writer, and a co-founder of the League of Women Voters. She served as the Vice Chair of the Democratic Party in 1922, and later in Franklin Roosevelt's 1932 Presidential campaign. She served as an editor of Good Housekeeping magazine from 1925 to 1934. In the 1940s, the Washington Post regularly covered the Blairs' parties, which often included Washington's elite. ~~
