Esther Cleveland (September 9, 1893 – June 25, 1980) was the daughter of the President of the United States Grover Cleveland.

Esther Cleveland is the first — and as of 2012 the only — presidential child born in the White House. She contracted measles when it spread through the White House, leading to a quarantine.[1] Five years later, she contracted diphtheria.[2]

She made her debut in 1912[3] and was rumored to be engaged to Randolph D. West shortly after (which was denied by her relatives).[4] In 1918 she married Captain William Sidney Bence Bosanquet of the Coldstream Guards of the British Army.[5] He was the son of Sir Frederick Albert Bosanquet, the Common Serjeant of London. Her husband (born 1893) died on 5 March 1966.[5] Her daughter was the British philosopher Philippa Foot.

Cleveland died in New Hampshire at age 86.
