Easter Egg Roll: 1902

Of late years the custom of spending Easter Monday on the White House lawns has grown, and each year the crowds in attendance are larger....

The white and the negro leave questions of race domination rest for the day and mingle democratically. Big children and little children, babes in arms, and the young misses who have just dropped their skirts to the ankle, boys in short trousers and insipid youths with down on their lips and a cynical regard for the frivolities of childhood are all there at some time during the day.

"Guests of the President," The Washington Post, March 31, 1902.
