Easter Egg Roll: 1934

An even 50,000 guests churned the south grounds of the White House into an eight-hour, well-done omelet, breaking all records for Easter egg rolling....

Conditions were almost perfect for the huge turnout and a gay time. It was warm, the sun was bright, eggs were cheap and the hostess, the first lady of the land, was graciousness personified. If the president, now fishing in southern waters, had been there no more could be desired. "50,000 Crowd Mansion Yard To Roll Eggs," The Washington Post, April 3, 1934.
