Easter Egg Roll: 1927

".... The story of how President Coolidge appeared and waved from an upper balcony, of how Mrs. Coolidge with Rebecca, the celebrated raccoon, braved the surging tide of little and big humanity, will be told over and over again....The crush was too much for Rebecca and she showed her displeasure plainly. But the first lady was not so easily discouraged. She carried the pet indoors and returned to the delight of the crowd."

—"30,000 Children Roll Eggs on the White House Lawn," The Washington Post, April 19, 1927
