02/21/2023 - 02/28/2023

What is the history of the White House and how has it evolved over the past two centuries? Find out in this Roundtable course led by Matthew Costello, Vice President of the David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History and Senior Historian for the White House Historical Association.

This course explores the history of the White House in two sessions. The first session will examine the evolution of the White House as a home and museum, touching on the people who lived and worked there, their impact on the house, and how preservation efforts led to the creation of the White House Collection. The second will examine the transformation of the American presidency and how presidential workspaces such as the West Wing and Oval Office came to be.

This class will take place live online with an opportunity to interact with the instructor and be recorded for later viewing by participants.
