Inside the White House

Source Notes  ›  

The research and factual information behind Inside the White House: Stories from the World's Most Famous Residence (2013) emanates from many years of the White House Historical Association's productions of web presentations, traveling exhibitions, lesson plans, and publications. Works by William Seale--the President's House (2008) and The White House: History of an American Idea (2000)--and Betty Monkman, The White House: Its Historic Furnishings and First Families (2000) are central to this study of the White House. The association's journal, White House History, provided a rich repository of scholarly works used for this project. The bibliography published in Inside the White House: Stories from the World's Most Famous Residence (2013) contains the full catalog of books published by the White House Historical Association and a selection of additional works about the White House and its occupants referenced in these notes. The source notes also provide links to presentations on the association website that were condensed or adapted for use in this publication.
