Introduction

Maureen Mansfield, the gracious wife of the Senate majority leader, was raised in the shadow of the Anselmo mine. Friends say she possesses a true Butte personality; open-hearted, fun-loving and friendly. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hayes, she was educated at St. Catherine's in St. Paul, Minnesota and taught at the local high school. A shy, young miner was seen stopping by at the Hayes' front porch, his lunch bucket clutched in hands. Maureen urged him to try to complete his education, which he did, at the Montana School of Mines. They were married, and are a perfect example of the Butte saying that love takes a lifetime. This is her recipe for Irish pasties. Maureen Mansfield, the gracious wife of the Senate majority leader, was raised in the shadow of the Anselmo mine.
