This One Looks... Like That One

My Father-in-Law and I were strolling through one of the galleries at the Museo Massimo on Wednesday and came across this Roman Matron from the early Empire.
Bust of a Matron
We both did a double take, looked at each other and simultanously said the name of a minor figure from 20th century American history. Any guesses?

Answer on Monday.

16 agosto - San Rocco

Kind of looks a little like Calvin Coolidge to me ;)

Eleanor Roosevelt was the first person that came to mind.
..not the shinyest marble in the bag was she.

I thought Eleanor too, but then you said it was a minor figure, so I give up.
