Description: This book seeks to portray the stately hospitality of the Executive Mansion of the eighteenth century and to show how the backgrounds of President George Washington and his wife influenced them in establishing the protocol for the first administration, which set the pattern for those to follow. In contrast, the lavish social events of the Victorian era are presented, together with the conditions and personalities which called that period into being. Those social events are all illustrative of the times in which they took place just as the social activities of the White House today reflect our own times.
It is for this reason that the social history of so fundamental an institution as the White House can be an exacting record of the constantly changing pattern of social life in America.
