In her father's public career, Cox performed a ceremonial role, in contrast to her younger sister Julie Nixon Eisenhower's more political involvement. Cox accompanied him on many campaign stops and, after his inauguration, on state trips around the world.
Cox was born on February 21, 1946, and grew up in New York City, attending the Chapin School in Manhattan. She briefly attended Finch College, a now-defunct women's college, then Boston College in Boston, Massachusetts, graduating in 1968 with a Bachelor of Arts in English. At her graduation on June 14, 1968, her father served as a special guest speaker.
In 1964, she was presented as a debutante to high society at the prestigious International Debutante Ball at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. Edward Cox was her civilian escort at the International Debutante Ball.
Marriage and professional activities
She has lived a very private life in the suburbs of New York, and was a stay-at-home mother for her son, Christopher Nixon Cox, born in March 1979. Her husband is now a corporate attorney and the chairperson of the New York Republican State Committee. She serves on the boards of many medical-research institutions, as well as the Richard Nixon Foundation at the Nixon Library in California.
