President and Mrs. Reagan at Camp David

This photograph, taken by White House photographer Michael Evans on October 2, 1982, shows President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan walking hand-in-hand during a visit to Camp David. Camp David, then called Shangri-La, was established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt as a presidential retreat. President Dwight D. Eisenhower renamed the retreat Camp David after his grandson, David Eisenhower. President Reagan relished the privacy and freedom of the retreat, and enjoyed the rare pleasure of being able to take morning walks away from security personnel and public scrutiny.
