Margaret Woodrow Wilson in 1912

Margaret Woodrow Wilson (16 April 1886, Gainesville, Georgia – 12 February 1944, Pondicherry, India) was the daughter of President Woodrow Wilson and Ellen Louise Axson. Wilson had two sisters, Jessie W. Wilson and Eleanor R. Wilson. After her mother's death she served as the First Lady of the United States until Woodrow's second marriage.

Wilson sang and made several recordings around 1918. In 1938 she travelled to the ashram of Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry, India where she chose to stay for the rest of her life. Six years later Wilson died there from a kidney infection. Margaret Woodrow Wilson was later known in Sri Aurobindo Ashram as 'Nistha'. The name was given to her by Sri Aurobindo Ashram after she became an inmate of the Ashram. The Sanskirit word 'Nistha' means "sincerity" in English.
