Margaret Woodrow Wilson (in 1912)


American singer and editor, a daughter of US President Woodrow Wilson and Ellen Louise Axson. Wilson had two sisters, Jessie W. Wilson and Eleanor R. Wilson. After her mother's death in 1914 she served as the First Lady of the United States until Wilson's second marriage in 1915.

Wilson made several recordings around 1918. About 1940 she travelled to the ashram of Sri Aurobindo in Puducherry, India, where she chose to stay for the rest of her life. She was known in the Ashram as 'Nistha' (Sanskrit for "sincerity").

Wilson and scholar Joseph Campbell edited the English translation of the classical 1942 work on the Hindu mystic, Sri Ramakrishna, 'The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna' by Swami Nikhilananda.

She died from uremia on February 12, 1944 at Pondicherry.
