                                                 Book on the White House
       
          In November of 2000, the month that marked the 200th anniversary of John and Abigail Adams moving into the new Executive Mansion, the White House Historical Association held a conference in Washington on the history of the White House. Among those delivering papers were Edith B. Gelles (on Abigail Adams as First Lady, White House Curator Betty Monkman (on the Lincoln White House), Richard Norton Smith (on the White House in the Gilded Age), and Allida Black (on Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt). I delivered, as most of you will remember, a paper entitled "Theodore Roosevelt's White House."  This presentation was shown several times on C-SPAN.  Now the volume of the papers from that conference on the history of the White House is available:
       
      William Seale, editor, THE WHITE HOUSE:  ACTORS AND OBSERVERS, Boston: Northeastern University Press,  2002 (the volume is copyrighted by the White House Historical Association).  The book is 214 pp., hard cover, profusely illustrated, many pictures in color.
       
          I thought this might interest you.
