Newport Home of Ruth Buchanan Wheeler

Beaulieu, the Bellevue Avenue residence of Ruth Wheeler. Ruth was the wife of the late diplomat Wiley T. Buchanan, who was President Eisenhower's chief of protocol. They purchased the home back in the late 1960's. The home, then, was a decaying dump, but was beautifully restored by Wiley and Ruth. Ruth, now twice a widow, still lives at Beaulieu today.
