Lurleen Burns Wallace (born Lurleen Brigham Burns; September 19, 1926 – May 7, 1968) was the 46th Governor of Alabama for fifteen months from January 1967 until her death in May 1968. She was the first wife of Alabama Governor George Wallace, whom she succeeded as governor because the Alabama constitution forbade consecutive terms. She was Alabama's first female Governor and was the only female governor to hold the position until Kay Ivey became the second woman to succeed to the office in 2017. She is also (as of 2020) the only female governor in U.S. history to have died in office. In 1973, she was posthumously inducted into the Alabama Women's Hall of Fame.

  • Lurleen Burns Wallace (ur. 19 września 1926, zm. 7 maja 1968) – amerykańska polityk, pierwsza żona polityka amerykańskiego George’a Wallace, jedyna kobieta wybrana na gubernatora Alabamy. Zgodnie z przepisami z lat 60., popularny gubernator Alabamy George Wallace nie mógł w 1966 kandydować na kolejną kadencję gubernatorską. Znalazł jednak sposób na obejście przepisów - nakłonił do kandydowania żonę i zyskał poparcie Partii Demokratycznej dla takiego rozwiązania. Lurleen Wallace została wybrana na gubernatora i 16 stycznia 1967 objęła formalnie urząd. W ciągu krótkiej kadencji lojalnie realizowała politykę męża, ale zgłaszała także własne inicjatywy, m.in. zwiększenie funduszy stanowych na lecznictwo psychiatryczne. Krótko po objęciu urzędu wykryto u niej chorobę nowotworową. Zmarła w maju 1968, a jej mąż utracił wkrótce wpływy w stanie - Lurleen Wallace zastąpił Albert Brewer (dotychczasowy zastępca gubernatora), który prowadził niezależną politykę. Na jej cześć nazwę Lurleen nadano jednemu z jezior w środkowej Alabamie. (pl)

  • Lurleen Burns Wallace, född 19 september 1926 i Tuscaloosa i Alabama, död 7 maj 1968 i Birmingham i Alabama, var en amerikansk demokratisk politiker. Hon var den första kvinnliga guvernören i Alabama 1967-1968. Hon var George Wallaces första hustru. Hon är också (från och med 2017) den enda kvinnliga guvernören i USA:s historia att ha dött på ämbetet. 16 år gammal gifte hon sig med George Wallace i maj 1943. Hon var hemma med parets fyra barn: Bobby Jo, Peggy Sue, George III och Janie Lee. Det yngsta barnet fick sitt mellannamn efter Robert E. Lees efternamn. Hon var delstatens första dam 1963-1967, då George Wallace var guvernör för första gången. Hon vägrade att servera alkohol i officiella bjudningar. Hon diagnostiserades 1965 med livmodercancer. På den tiden var det inte tillåtet för en sittande guvernör i Alabama att kandidera på nytt. George Wallace arbetade för en lagändring men lyckades inte få ändringen i stånd i tid för 1966 års guvernörsval. Demokraterna i Alabama nominerade hustrun Lurleen i stället. Lurleen Wallace lyckades hemlighålla sin cancer och hålla en tuff kampanjtidtabell trots att hon under tiden genomgick strålbehandling. Hon vann valet och inledde arbetet som guvernör i januari 1967. Hon avled mitt i George Wallaces presidentkampanj i presidentvalet i USA 1968. (sv)
