Cherry Blossom Gallery - Photo 5

In this photo, Tricia Nixon, daughter of President Richard Nixon and First Lady Patricia Nixon, meets with the 1970 Cherry Blossom Queen contestants on the South Portico of the White House. During the 1970 Cherry Blossom festivities, Mrs. Nixon was caught in a traffic jam during the annual parade, commenting later, “I had my own parade and loved it. . . The Cherry Blossom Queen princesses waved and blew kisses. It was a treat.”
