Easter Egg Roll: 1990

"Thousands of children frolicked on the White House lawn Monday, hunting wooden eggs and rolling real ones in a rite of spring that converted the presidential estate into a playground. President Bush joined briefly in the fun, blowing a shiny whistle to start an Easter Egg roll in which his 3-year-old granddaughter, Marshall Bush, was entered….Actually, there were no winners or losers in the 10-yard races. All comers got wooden eggs bearing the names of George and Barbara Bush."

—"White House lawn comes alive during the rite of spring," The Selina Journal, April 17, 1990
