Best of Boston

1977 Best Housewife

Claire Caso

Clever Claire managed to hold down a full-time city job as an aide to City Counselor John Kerrigan (her $300-a-week salary nicely supplemented her husband’s hefty paycheck from the federal government), run a smooth household, raise eight lovely children, and even pick up a little extra money taking care of the neighbor’s kids. If she had showed up at City Hall every now and then, her talent as a housewife would probably have gone unacclaimed.
