Her father's lucky strike at Camp
Bird In Duray, Colo., resulted in a
gilded life In one of Washington's
largest mansions, residence in Bar
Harbor, Me., trips to Europe, hob
nobbing with royalty, and marriage
In 1008 to Ned McLean, son of the
multl-mtlllonaire publisher of the
Cincinnati Enquirer and Washing
ton Post.
Her first-born. Vinson, known as
the "Hundred Million Dollar Baby."
was cradled In a golden crib given
him by King Leopold of Belgium.
She and her husband were in and
out of the White House at will dur
ing the presidencies of Harding and
Coolldge.
Mrs. McLean, on most of the oc
casions on which she entertained,
wore the famous Hope diamond,
-44 carat stone with strange and
beautiful blue lights.
Said to have been stolen from the
forehead of a Hindu idol, legend
has it that the gem brought violent
death or misfortune to at least six
of its owners, among them Mme. de
Montespan, Louis XVI and Lord
Francis Pelham Clinton.
It was her favorite jewel, but she
would never permit her children
to touch it, especially after her son,
Vinson, was killed in a traffic acci
dent at the age of 10.
Exactly what is to become of the
diamond will not be known until
her will Is filed for probate by her
attorney, former Circuit Judge
Thurman Arnold.
.Mrs. McLean reputedly paid
$180,000 for the diamond but is said
to have refused offers up to M.00O,
000 for it.
