The Italian American Museum joins millions of Americans of all backgrounds in mourning the loss of Geraldine Ferraro. Geraldine Anne Ferraro was an attorney, a Democratic Party politician, and a member of the United States House of Representatives. In 1984 she became the first female Vice Presidential candidate to represent a major American political party.

Dr. Joseph V. Scelsa, President of the Italian American Museum, added, "Congresswoman Ferraro will always be remembered in our hearts for the kindness she showed to the average person who crossed her path along the way. On a personal note, I will never forget the kindness she showed by assisting my mother, Katherine Scelsa, in finding her luggage after it had been lost on the trip that they both took with the National Organization of Italian American Women to Italy."
