Currently serving as U.S. Secretary of State, former First Lady of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton, first attracted national attention in 1969 for her remarks as the first student commencement speaker at Wellesley College. Captured in the summer of '69, the photographs provide a rare look at a then 22-year-old Hillary Rodham talking about student protests which she supported in her commencement speech. Hit the thumbs for a closer look at the original photos captured by Lee Balterman for LIFE magazine.
