General MacArthur's Mother

Friday, May 7, 2021

General MacArthur’s mother, Mary “Pinky” Hardy, saw her son as a man of destiny. Until her death in 1935, MacArthur considered her an important confidant and advisor. Every MacArthur biographer has analyzed their relationship to try to better understand or explain the general. But who was she? Did she really go to West Point to be near her son? Was she key to his career advancement? Join Jim Zobel and Amanda Williams of the MacArthur Memorial for a discussion of the life of Mary “Pinky” Hardy and the role that she played in MacArthur’s life. How do you join? The easiest way is to follow the General Douglas MacArthur Memorial on Facebook. When we go live from our page, you should receive a notification that we are "live."
