Scheronda Gilliam took her son to the Harriet Lane Clinic in East Baltimore to make sure he was healthy. But besides medical advice for her baby, Gilliam received tips about GED classes and job training for herself, information that could help her son as well. "I want to make a better person of myself," said Gilliam, a 33-year-old janitor who would rather work with computers. Helping Gilliam to reach her technology goal were Sam Zand and Dan Cataldo, Johns Hopkins University students who are volunteers with Project Health, a program that connects disenfranchised and low-income adults with public benefits such as medical care, housing and education.

Just before the Civil War, Harriet Lane brought grace and style to the White House - and left a major pediatric legacy.Who was the best first lady ever? A poll of academics by the Siena College Research Institute a decade ago concluded it was Eleanor Roosevelt. In his readable and comprehensive 2003 book based in part on the survey (Rating the First Ladies, Citadel Press, 374 pages, $22.95), John B. Roberts II wrote that she set the precedent for a first lady to have her own causes and constituencies - and then after the White House she became a significant influence on national and world affairs in her own right as an advocacy journalist and United Nations delegate.

THREE DEMOCRATIC presidential candidates are single, as Susan Baer pointed out in this paper recently.They are Jerry Brown, who used to squire pop singer Linda Ronstadt; Sen. Bob Kerrey, who used to squire movie star Debra Winger, and Gov. Doug Wilder, who squires zillionaire socialite Patricia Kluge.Should one become president, he would be the first eligible bachelor to enter the White House since Grover Cleveland in 1884. Cleveland was also elected again later, in 1892, but by then he had wed. Woodrow Wilson was widowed in 1914, re-married in 1915, before being re-elected in 1916.

Most of us know Lincoln, Washington, Kennedy, Truman, the Roosevelts, Woodrow Wilson. But James Buchanan?Yes, indeed. He is not one of the best-known or most respected presidents, but he was the 15th person to hold the office, from 1857-1861, just before Abraham Lincoln. He was totally a Pennsylvanian -- born in Franklin County, graduated from Dickinson College in Carlisle, studied law in Lancaster. Then he went into politics.Everything that has been written about him indicates a man of integrity, but perhaps one who should not have been president.

Summer vacation started on a tragic note for students at Columbia's Atholton High School yesterday with news that one of their own had died in a car crash a few blocks from school minutes after the year's last bell rang. Danny Ong, 17, and his brother, Tony, 16, of North Laurel were on their way to drop off a friend at his North Laurel home about 10:40 a.m. when the car plowed into a utility pole, knocking out a transformer. The impact killed Danny Ong and shattered the pole, causing it to crash, wires and all, onto the passenger side of the car. Police said Danny Ong was apparently speeding as his 1991 maroon Honda Accord rounded a curve on Harriet Tubman Lane west of the school.

The Johns Hopkins Children's Center — originally founded as the Harriet Lane Home for Invalid Children — celebrated its centenary earlier this month. Its endowment originated from the largesse of Harriet Lane, who during the mid-19th century was considered one of Washington's most glamorous women and hostesses. Harriet Rebecca Lane — she later dropped her middle name — was born in 1830 in Mercersburg, Pa., the daughter of Elliott Tole Lane and Jane Ann Buchanan Lane, and raised in Franklin County, Pa. Her mother was the sister of James Buchanan, who would become the 15th president of the United States in 1857.

She was born Joyce Fangmeyer in Baltimore and raised in Martinsburg, W.Va. She was a 1944 graduate of the Union Memorial Hospital School of Nursing.
