So what if it happened back in 1944 and it’s never been established if Dwight D. Eisenhower and Kay Summersby really did have an affair, this evidence, which came to light in Kansas this week, seems pretty damning:
Eisenhower’s pets continue to be a natural topic of interest because of his ties to K-State. Milton Eisenhower, Ike’s brother, was president of the university from 1943 to 1950. According to Elmore, Ike visited Manhattan Jan. 8, 1944, bringing a gift of a puppy to his niece and Milton Eisenhower’s daughter, Ruthie. The puppy was the offspring of Ike’s Scottish terrier Telek, who also may have belonged to Kay Summersby, Ike’s wartime chauffeur.
Does this mean Ike and Kay shared a puppy as opposed to a love child?
