gone astray somewhere down the line.
I don't know if TR literally *banned* Christmas trees in the White
House, but according to the Dallas Morning News there was no
Christmas tree in the White House during Christmas of 1902.
In 1903 there was no *family* Christmas tree in the White House, but
Archie Roosevelt set up his own little tree in the sewing room.
I'm afraid I don't know what occurred in subsequent years, though.
All my best,
